Databases Optimized for Mobile Access

Some databases are optimized for mobile access. Database vendors such as Ebsco and Gale have developed apps for users to access databases via mobile devices. They have designed their websites to optimize the display on smaller screens, such as the ones on smartphones and other mobile devises. You may click on the links directly to get to the databases by these vendors.

To use the full-featured versons of the websites or view a list of databases that the Library subscribes to, please click on the Annotated A-Z List of Online Databases.
