After reading chapter 3, Badke starts by talking about databases. Many people may have used databases before, but some not using them effectively. Databases are defined as a collection of data can be retrieved by using organized procedures. Which in many cases people tends not to follow them as far as be specifics or using key words. With endless databases that are always being updated unlike paper based resources like yellow pages. I think that is probably one of the biggest challenges of searching online databases, such a vast amount of information. Badke talks about key word searching and how direct it can make a topic. He says they can be helpful, but can also be a backstabber. There are many words the can be described by other different words. Being as precise as you can to narrow down your search.
