Databases

Databases direct you to a wide variety articles, journals, and periodicals (newspaper and magazines). You should note the name of the database you are using such as "Academic Search Complete" or "Gale Artemis Literary Sources," as EBSCO and Gale are hubs and not the database itself. So when you need a librarian to help you navigate a database they will not know which one you are referring to if you mention "EBSCO" vs. "Academic Search Complete." 

Textbooks

The library carries copies of many of the textbooks needed for your classes. Textbooks are available for 2-hour checkout, 7-day checkout, and in some cases 28-day checkout (check with your professor if they accept earlier editions). Search the catalog below for availability.
