Using Coastline’s Online Library–reminder about how to access
a. For your final project, at least three sources must be from the Online Library.
- First, go to http://www.coastline.edu/library/ebooks-and-databases
- Second, scroll down and click on “General / Multidisciplinary / Academic Journal Databases.”
- You now have links to three major databases:
- Academic Search Complete (also known as EBSCOhost)
- ProQuest Research Library
- You may also use any other research databases available in the Online Library.
- After you click on the link to one of the databases, you’ll then be asked to enter your MyCCC or District user name and password.
- If you get stumped, try as many different databases and variations on search terms as you can. Get creative.
- After you’ve found at least three sources from the Coastline Online Library, you may then use Google or another search engine to locate additional reliable sources.
b. If you have questions about the Online Library, contact our knowledgeable and helpful librarian, Elizabeth:
