The CSS Library has many online databases to help you with your research. They contain primarily articles from periodicals such as journals. There are two types of databases including general databases, which contain articles on all types of topics and specialized ones designed for a specific subject area such as nursing, education, psychology, business, etc.
If you are off-campus, you will be prompted to log in using your CSS login - the same as what you use for my.CSS, Brightspace, and your CSS Gmail. All databases to which the CSS Library subscribes
If you cannot find the full-text to the article you are looking for in the database you are searching, try looking in the
A to Z: Find Online & Print Journals list.
This will search both the CSS print subscriptions and all the CSS databases.
NOTE: be sure to search for the JOURNAL title NOT the article title!!
Instructions for finding the full-text of an article
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service that allows you to request books, videos, and articles from other libraries.
How does it work?
Find the book, video or other article you want. Check to make sure the CSS Library does not have it or have online access to it. Then, fill out an online form.
For individual journal titles, click on the links to these databases in order to do an advanced search where you can combine the title of the journal and your topic to find the full-text of the articles. Links to instructions for these databases are also given.
