What is a database?

  • A database is a virtual collection of information.
  • This collected information is usually scholarly articles, meaning it is written by experts and reviewed by a board of experts.
  • Each database offers a different set of collected information.   
  • Access to most databases is through subscription.  You will need to enter the database through the library's website. If you are off-campus you will be prompted to enter your ICC computer log-in and password. This is the same log-in that use to log-in to ICC campus computers.


You can search directly in the search widget below.
