Non Education Databases

Why use non-educational databases? The education field is diverse and interdisciplinary.  For example, disciplines such as HPER, Sociology, and Communications often overlap with areas of Education.  Depending on your choice of topic, your search results will be enhanced by including one or more relevant subject databases.
