The library subscribes to several databases, and most permit you to create a personal account on their platform.

With a personal account, you may organize and store useful sources indefinitely, and not fear losing information you might have spent hours finding. Please note that the library has no access or control over these private accounts.

A single MyEBSCOhost account will allow you to sign in and use account features on each of the following databases:

You must have an active Network Account to login to computers in college labs and classrooms, and to access the wireless network when you are on campus.

When you are off campus, this username and password are requested when you try to access articles and eBooks from the library’s databases.
