EBSCO is an aggregator.  They contract with journal publishers and put all the journals under an umbrella.  This umbrella is called a database.  Unlike the Internet or World Wide Web (www) CINAHL allows you to to limit your search to Peer Reviewed Journals, to Humans, to a specific age category, to English.....These are called filters or limiters.


When you search a specific database like CINAHL you use a convenient search engine interface. Some databases such as CINAHL include a thesaurus of MAJOR TERMS ("MM") to help you find articles more easily You may also be familiar with other where you can use your MyFolder Account.:  AltHealthwatch, Abstracts in Social Gerontology, Biological Abstracts, EBSCO e-Book Collection, Health e-Books, Health Source: Nursing & Academic Collection, Medline, Science e-Books, Family Studies Abstract, Human Resources Abstracts, PsychInfo, Psychology & Behavioral Sciences Collection, SocIndex (Sociology) Full-Text, Violence & Abuse Abstracts, Science Reference Center, Agricola (Nutrition), Biological Abstracts (Biology & Nutrition) .
