Using and choosing databases

A database is a collection of information, organized somehow, which is searchable. 

A scholarly research database is one of these, designed for and by scholars, usually for a specific topic or discipline.  It will contain the literature of a discipline, organised and described in a way that's appropriate to that discipline, with tools useful to it.
