Databases typically aggregate collections of electronic journals, ebooks, and articles to which full-text is available. Examples of library databases are Discovery, Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete, IEEE Explore, ACM Digital Library, etc. These databases bring together a collection of materials that are searchable via one interface with links to the full-text of articles or chapters.
An Index is a database of citations, often including information about articles such as abstracts. Full-text access is not usually available, so use the link for Interlibrary Loan to request a title.
