Suggested keywords

Research databases use keywords when performing a search.  That is why it is a good idea to come up with several keywords or synonyms before searching the databases.  

Key words (or phrases) are those that are most important in your research question.

How to access the databases

 The easiest way to access the Library's resources is from the College's homepage at

From there you can just click "Library/TLCC" at the top.  Then click the link for "Articles/Databases."

You will be asked to log in with your student ID number as the borrower ID. The pin/password is the last 4 digits of your student ID number
