Why Use An Article Index?

Confused reader

 

When you use an online article index, it quickly scans thousands of issues of many different periodicals to find a match for your search terms.

An index will show you which periodicals have articles on your topic.

Otherwise, you would have to look through each issue of each periodical for articles on your topic.

In this Searchpath module, we'll use the terms "article index" and "article database" or "database" interchangeably.
