These databases may seem similar: they both span multiple scholarly and popular sources, and they have similar date coverage. However, you will find that using the same search terms in each database brings up different results. You may also find that some search words work really well in one database, but not in the other.
If you need more articles, or you are unable to find what you are looking for, trying using the other database.
