Q. What is a database?
A database is a large, regularly updated file of digitized information (bibliographic records, abstracts, full-text documents, directory entries, images, statistics, etc.) related to a specific subject or field, consisting of records of uniform format and organized for ease and speed of search and retrieval by a management system software.
The University Library subscribes to over 300 electronic databases. You can browse the electronic databases by subject or alphabetically.
For remote access to the electronic databases, the UTEP VPN GlobalProtect is strongly recommended for the best connectivity and stability. If you would like help finding a database/s for your research, please stop by the Research & Instruction Desk for assistance or call us at 915-747-5643.
If you receive an error message when trying to access the databases, call the number above or email the E-Resources Team.
