What is the difference between Discover and databases?

Discover is the Library search engine. Discover allows you to quickly search for a broad range of material in your topic area, by searching a large number of databases at the same time.

Databases often focus on a specific subject area. As your academic interests develop, you'll need to use a range of databases. When you are researching for your dissertation, you will need to conduct comprehensive research in your topic area. Databases can help you to do this.
