Accessing Library Databases
Go to the SRC Library webpage and select Databases A-Z, or click on one of the links in the Databases and eBooks boxes within this guide. Access is available to students on all SRC campuses and from off campus with your library card number found on the back of your student ID card. When prompted for this number be sure to use a capital D and your digits with no spaces in between, for example D8692xxxxx.
So What is a Database?
Many of our databases are EBSCO products that the Library subscribes to, by clicking here you can view a short video that gives an overview of how most of the EBSCO databases work. There is also a Searching Databases library guide that can help.
The Library is located on the Canton campus, second floor/Centers. Hours are: Monday-Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
This short video demonstrates a basic search in Academic Search Complete.
Boolean - when you use a Boolean search, keywords are combined by the operators AND, OR, and NOT.
You can use these operators in the database search interface to create a very broad or very narrow search.
Quotation Marks - use this option when you want to search exact phrases.
Enclose your search terms with "quotation marks" to find words in the exact order as typed. For example, typing "social media" will return articles with that exact phrase.
