Library Database Resources

For items the library owns, the primary method is to start by searching for materials using our online database, WorldCat Local. You can search using keywords, by looking up an author or title, or by using several different criteria (key terms and phrases that help define the search).

To specifically look for full-text articles,  use one of these databases or open access resources:

EBSCOhost (Do not use other EBSCO resources listed, which are not as thorough or are geared towards K-12 research.)


To continue from here, click on your choice.  If you choose the top, EBSCOhost Web, you’ll get a large list of different databases to choose from.
