Research Resources

Why use the library's databases instead of Google and Wikipedia?

Information on the Internet can be reputable and accurate, or—because anyone can post online—it can also be inaccurate or misleading. It is always important to evaluate what you find online. The library subscribes to databases that contain vetted, reliable sources that regular search engines can’t access. With just one search, these databases locate hundreds of sources, including newspapers, magazines and scholarly articles.

Our Databases

The LCC Libraries subscribe to the following databases. When you search for a topic in either the Junior or Senior School catalogues, each database will be searched automatically, allowing you to browse all results at once. To obtain the passwords for off-campus access please speak to the librarians.
