Using  Databases

When accessing databases off-campus, users are prompted to input their college ID and password.

We recommend using either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox when using our databases. These browsers are required to view full-text articles in PDF.

As of October 2018, we have new databases available through MeL! If you don’t see an old favorite, don’t panic! We are happy to help suggest a great new option!
