YES! You can access all of ECC Library's databases from home.
When you select a specific database (through the Library website) it will prompt you to enter:
ECC ID # followed by EC
If you need assistance please call 636 584-6560
Databases provide access to journals, newspapers, magazines, reference books, images, music, statistics, videos and more. Majority of these resources are full-text. These resources are typically more up to date than books.
Databases are credible resources available to ECC students 24/7 from any internet device.
Databases have been selected for the courses offered at ECC and for the education levels of Associate and Bachelor degree coursework.
With over 2 dozen databases to choose from, it can be confusing as to where to start. Here are a few helpful tips:
Open Firefox and do a Google search for "Texting and Driving"
Open EBSCOhost Databases (click above link), choose Academic Search Premier search for "Texting and Driving"
||EBSCOhost - Academic Search Premier|
|19,000,000 results||232 results|
|Advertisements included||No Advertisments|
|Must evaluate ALL websites (CRAAP test)||Must consider if articles are relevant to topic|
|Images (maybe copyrighted)||Limited images (can be used for coursework)|
|No personal assistance||Librarian assistance chat box included|
|Wikipedia listed||Articles or books|
|Sorted by ???||Sort options of date, relevancy, source|
|How to cite?||Citation tool, just copy and paste|
Results by EBSCO are limited to articles, include a citation tool option and are not cluttered with advertisements. EBSCO is a better option for this type of research.
