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:

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
|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
|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.
