From a user's perspective, the main difference between a library database and a website is access.
A library database is a licensed online source of information and data that is organized, indexed, and searchable via an internal search engine. Library databases provide vetted, credible information which is typically not available for free on the Internet.
Databases differ widely in terms of navigation and content and often get updated without a warning. The best way to learn how to use a database is to use it for research!
Knowing how to navigate databases and relevant websites will save you a lot of time when you work on research projects for your classes! In addition, these research skills will translate well into your career as many future employers use commercial versions of the same resources.
