Accessing the Databases

Access online library materials through the library databases!

To access the databases locked icon (same icon that displays by the LSC-limited access resources) from off-campus, you will be prompted to enter your LSC email/password or your 14-digit library barcode.

Search the Library Collections

Starting Points

Current Issue Collections:

These databases focus on current and controversial issues and provide introductions to the topics and collect a variety of related sources to further your research. Great starting points!

What is...? Look it up!

Don't take ideas and terms for granted -- take a moment to do some simple, one-word searches in a resource like Credo Reference to read some background information. You never know what ideas you'll generate.

Multi-Discipline Databases

Find More Databases

Even More Databases:

Consider which disciplines apply to your specific topic when choosing your databases.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar is like Google's version of our research databases: it lists scholarly content, making it easier to pick out than if you did a normal Google Search.

It's just one tool among many: it's not a replacement for the library collections, but it is a useful addition to them.
