A database is a collection of information organized to be searched by computer. On the STCC Library Web site, our electronic databases are collections of articles or in-depth reports that you can retrieve through your Internet connection. The library has subscriptions to both general databases (example: EbscoHost Academic Search Premier) or subject specific databases (example, U.S. History in Context). These databases usually provide full-text access to journal articles. If you want to be sure to retrieve only full-text articles, so that you get the whole article right there on your computer, be sure to click on the "full-text" option on your search screen.
Our databases are purchased for the exclusive use of those on-site, or those holding current STCC library bar codes.
The databases on this page should be helpful. Of course, if you have questions, PLEASE check with a librarian. We are here to help!
