How Do I?: Choose a Database

Getting to the library databases

The best way to find articles is in the library databases. You can get to them by clicking on articles on the top bar of the library homepage.

A pull down box will appear and you can choose All Databases. A Database is a collection of information that can be searched in multiple ways. In the case of the TCC Databases most of this information is articles.

This brings up a list of all the databases. You can choose a subject or go the most commonly used ones on the right hand side.

Click on the database of your choice to go to it. If you are off campus it will ask you to log in at this point. You can log in with your myTCC username and password.
