What are Databases?
Research databases provide electronic access to articles originally published in scholarly journals, newspapers, and magazines as well as electronic books, videos, and images.
For a complete list of all the databases available through the Library, visit our Research Databases page.
This guide explains how to create "permalinks" to articles, videos, electronic books, and other content within NWACC Library's subscription databases.
Permalinks can be placed in Blackboard, in email, or on a website to share content with other members of the NWACC community. When users click these links, they're taken to specific articles and other content in our databases, making it easier for you to share content with students, colleagues, and friends.
This guide covers databases from the following vendors:
- EBSCOhost - Including Academic Search Elite, Ebook Collection, Literary Reference Center, and World History Collection.
- Gale - Including Academic OneFile, General Reference Center, Nursing Resource Center, and U.S. History Collection.
- Encyclopedia Britannica - Including Annals of American History and Britannica Online Encyclopedia.
- As well as Credo Reference, Ebrary, Films on Demand, JSTOR, LexisNexis, New York Times Historical, NewsBank, and Safari Tech Books Online.
