Library databases are collections of electronic information organized in a logical manner. The Libraries at MCC offer all types of databases from the general to the specific and from index citations to the full-text of thousands of periodical articles. MCC cooperates with statewide and regional consortia, such as SUNYConnect, the New York State Library, and the Rochester Regional Library Council, to bring many of these valuable research tools to our students and faculty. Attend this Brown Bag session to learn how you and your students can access and use these databases from on or off campus. Facilitated by Pam Czaja and Alice Harrington, ETS Libraries.
