Welcome Students! When you get class assignments to find a magazine, journal or newspaper article, the Library’s databases are a good source. Look at the EResources webpage at http://www.volstate.edu/Library/Resources.php; it will link you to almost 50 databases (databases contain lots of articles). You may discover you need a little help selecting or searching the databases… no problem! If you are in the Library, just ask a librarian to guide you through the process. If you’re off-campus, we want you to pick up the phone and call 615-230-3405 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether on or off-campus, you will be able to read full-text articles, save them and print them. Do remember to make a note of the database where you found the article; you’ll need it to create a bibliographic citation—but that’s something to think about another time.
Students and Vol State employees have off-campus access to the databases and other library resources, such as ebooks. You can connect to the databases when off-campus by entering your Vol State email username and password (not your V-Number) when needed.
Happy searching! Remember, we are ready to help you find information!
