Familiarizing yourself with a new database?

Let’s say you start a new job where you’ll be working with a new database unfamiliar to you. This could be due to you switching to a new company, receiving a promotion, etc. Since you’ll be working with a new DB with a structure that’s completely unknown to you (e.g. tables, views, stored procedures, etc.) How do you go about familiarizing yourself with the new DB? To create new queries, for example, how do you find which tables store the data you need?
