Library / Open Access Database Tools and Tips: Open Access Databases

Most databases have common elements which help streamline your research and save time. This How-To guide shares tools and tips for using the library databases at ACC.

About Open Access Databases

A large number of research institutions, academic institutions, and government agencies around the world create databases that contain articles, documents and datasets on nearly every conceivable academic field. Many of these databases are freely available through individual portals or websites.

ACC Library Databases are purchased and curated for college student research and require users to login using their ACCeID. After leaving ACC, users may access databases through their public library or investigate Open Access Databases.

If you are interested in seeing a classified and categorized collection of linked Open Access Databases which you can access from a single portal, go to Listing of Open Access DataBases (LOADB).
