EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) is the most powerful database at the Library, allowing you to search many smaller databases all at once. Search results include:
Be sure to click the box labeled "Limit to Full Text" in order to find the entire content of articles.
To log into a database from off-campus, click on the database link and when prompted, enter your NCC student I.D. number and password (the same way you would to open your "MyNCC" account). Once you have logged in, you will be able to navigate to other Library databases without having to type your password again during that searching session.
