DATABASE LINK SURVEY

As the resources available to our users have changed, the names of some of our navigation links are either misleading or less informative than we'd like. In the navigation bar at the right side of the Ryan Library home page, you'll see a link that says "Find Articles (Databases)."

Please help us improve the usefulness of that link by reconsidering the way it's worded.
