A guide to information literacy for students and instructors.

What are Databases?

Databases & eReference contain accurate and trustworthy information-- these are subscriptions paid for by the library similar to magazine subscriptions but online to allow greater accessibility.

Accessing Databases Off-Campus

These resources are available from any computer on the TSTC West campus.  Contact the library for the usernames and passwords to connect to these resources from home.
