What is an abstract?


An abstract is a brief summary of the content of an article. 

When searching library databases, you will find abstracts of many articles in your search results. You can review the abstract to determine if you would like to view the entire article, or move on to the next result.

Many articles will also contain an abstract at the beginning of the articles itself providing a summary of its contents.
