Database of the Day: EBSCOHost's Masterfile Premier

The Old Bridge Library hosts a number of free databases (that is, magazine and book resources that can be accessed through the Internet). Over the next several posts we will look at the most popular databases that you can use for research (and fun!)

Masterfile Premier is one of the most widely used databases in the Library, it is a powerful online reference system accessible via the Internet. The material available in this database ranges from general reference collections to popular magazines and subject-specific books and articles for students.

FYI, it's a common misconception that when schoolteachers tell their students not to use "The Internet" for their research, this includes the Library's database resources. Not true! The database contains the full text of articles and reference book entries that exist in print as well. They even provide a complete citation for your works cited page including the author, title and page numbers of the original article. Check it out!

For more information about Library databases, please call the information desk, (732) 721-5600 ext. 5033 or send us an e-mail.
