Difference between database and electronic serial Angelica Freitas 01 Oct 2008 13:50 UTC

Hello Serials people!!!

I have a question!
We all know that eventually most of our print collection will convert into
electronic format.
Here at our library we have a budget line for "database" and another for
"serials" (any format, including electronic).
Due to budget constraints, some of my colleagues have decided to "pay" for
some of their databases from the serials budget. I am a bit confused by all
of this and I would like to know if anyone out there knows the difference
between a database and electronic journal???

Sorry if I sound confusing
