ICC doesn't have it?

Consider requesting items not currently available at ICC through the following services:

Abstracts

Abstracts are not articles.  You should never site an abstract.  Abstracts are a summary of the article not the article itself.  You need to click on the "full text" link to access the article.  This full text may be html and/or pdf. If you have questions about accessing articles contact a librarian.

What is a database?

  • A database is a virtual collection of information.                          
  • A database will search many journals at once with your search terms.  When you search in a journal's website you are only searching that journal. 
  • 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 login and password.
