As an active HCCC student, you can sign into the Library from anywhere on or off campus. Given that this is an online class, you should be able to access these resources by providing your user id and your password. The following is information in relation to using HCCC’s Library for research purposes and a list of databases that I feel would work best for the purposes of this assignment:
