Any of the links to the right, or to other resources that you find on our databases page, can be embedded into a course shell or class webpage, or distributed to your students via email. These links all include a special bit of code at the front of the url for the database that directs users to our off-campus login page. Once they enter the current username and password, they will then be taken on to the search page for whatever database they are trying to use.

If you would like to start out with a narrower search, try taking advantage of some of the resources below:
These databases contain hundreds of full text reference books such as encyclopedias, dictionaries and handbooks. They are an excellent alternative to Wikipedia when students are just starting out with a topic and need to get background information before heading out to find articles. They cover a wide range of subject areas and easily allow students to copy or export MLA- or APA-ready citations.
Once students have their background on a topic and are ready to start exploring articles, these databases are good starting points because they cover all subject areas and offer a range of materials from newspaper articles to magazines and academic journals. They are easy to filter by type of resource (academic, popular, etc), date, or subject and will easily allow students to copy or export MLA- or APA-ready citations.
