What is a Database?

The ACC Libraries subscribe to dozens of databases. These are collections of higher quality online resources. They're just like using the web, but with quality control of the content and, usually, extra features, such as the ability to e-mail content, generate citations, translate into other languages, etc. If you're off campus, use your ACC eID to access these.

These databases have all sorts of resources: articles, reference sources, images, music, and much more.

Accessing Streaming Media (videos and music)

The Library subscribes to thousands of educational streaming videos and music. You can access them from any device with internet access. Off campus, you'll use your ACC eID to get in.

Library E-Books

The ACC Library has access to thousands of full-text e-books! Go to our page on  Online eBooks for more information, to see a list of our vendors, and to start reading!

Downloading E-Books

Thousands of our e-books are even downloadable, so you can read them on your (compatible) device!

Find out how to download some of our e-books to your computer or compatible device.
