Searching the Databases

To access the databases, you will need to log in with your L-number and your pin.  Your pin is the six digits of your birthday - MMDDYY.

Use the best database for your research. Some databases have information on many topics and some only cover specific subjects. If you need help finding the best databases, ask a librarian for help.
