In order to locate magazine, journal or newspaper articles you will need to search one of the library databases. The databases are arranged in two different ways:
Choose this if you know the name of the database you would like to use. For example purposes: Choose U.S. History in Context.
HINT: To start with until you become more familiar with electronic databases, use databases that have (Gale) or EBSCO after the database name - very user-friendly.
Choose this if you know what subject you would like to research. You will see a list of broad subject areas. When you click on one, you will see the databases recommended for that subject.
For this example, click on History > U.S. History in Context (Gale).
Type Gettysburg in the Search box and click the magnifying glass to search.
The front results page for this database provides multiple resource documentation choices.
See the History Databases box on the Research Tools page for the best databases to start with when searching for magazine, newspaper and journal articles.
What is the borrower ID and password?
Your borrower ID is your 7-digit student ID number. The password should be the last 4 digits of your student ID number. Please see the "Logging into HCC Libraries" page for more log-in instructions. If you are experiencing problems logging into the databases, please contact the library and we will do our best to assist you.
