Q. How are library databases different from Google?
Library databases are collections of materials allowing you to search for information in an organized collection. This organization leads to more relevant results. Content in databases has usually undergone some sort of review process, so the material is more reliable than information found on the internet.
Search engines, like Google, use bots to search the Internet and find results that match the words you entered. Search engines are great for finding background information as well as information on groups and organizations but it is difficult to narrow your search and you'll often get thousands of results. In addition anyone can post anything on the web.
