PostSubject: Articles and Databases   Fri 21 Mar - 13:07

On February 1, 2008, to improve security, the Library changed its procedure for remote authentication to its databases. Patrons no longer use the 14-digit number found on the bottom of their Cougar Cards. Instead, they enter the same user and domain names used to log onto computers on campus. For more information, please see the SXU domain information.

This page lists all the Library's databases in alphabetical order. If you prefer, follow the links on the left to the databases listed by subject.
Search through multiple databases at once with QuickSearch. A QuickSearch help page is available.
The Library also provides a complete alphabetical list of its 20,000+ journal titles available in print or full-text online.


Refworks is a Web-based bibliography and database manager that allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases.
