Research Databases

Dictionary page with the word research circled.

Research databases are online, organized collections of information. A database can contain a number of information sources including scholarly journals, encyclopedias, magazines, newspapers, videos, and images. Some databases cover a specific subject while others cover a wide variety of subjects.

Below is a list of the Wake Tech databases that contain health and medical information.

*Library Databases 

Students, faculty, and staff at Wake Tech have remote access to library databases off campus.  This includes full-text electronic books, journal & magazine articles, newspapers, videos, and much more.

Other Health Sciences Databases

NC LIVE has a very large collection of materials, but there are some subjects at Wake Tech that require more specialized material such as databases specific to nursing and allied health. The databases below are selected and purchased for you by Wake Tech and should help you when NC LIVE doesn't have what you need.
