How does a database differ from other types of resources on the website?

Our answer:

A library database is a subscription-based, organized collection of electronic information that allows a user to search for a particular topic, article, or book in a variety of ways (e.g., keyword, subject, author, title). Some databases contain the full-text of articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers, as well as books. Databases contain peer-reviewed and scholarly material which is not available on the open web. You can access library databases off-campus by logging in with your FSU account 24/7. You can find a library a database here.
