Are the "most used databases" the best ones to use?

Our answer:

Not always! It depends on your topic. For example, if you are writing a biology paper on the various color patterns of dart frogs, the database Business Source Complete or Access World News Research Collection found under ‘Most Used Databases’ most likely wouldn’t help you find very many pertinent articles. Academic Search Complete might. Browse through FSU Libraries’ Research Guides and take a look at the guide related to your subject for suggested databases.
