Periodical Articles

Electronic databases enable users to find journal, magazine and newspaper articles, book reviews, chapters in books, essays, images, definitions, and other documents not usually listed in library catalogs. Some databases provide citations and abstracts only; others also provide the full text of documents on all subjects. Records in these databases are fully indexed by author, title, subject headings, etc., and thus these databases provide powerful searchability.

Although the Library still maintains some active print subscriptions, the products listed below have allowed us to expand our collection of periodicals exponentially, while at the same time providing remote access even at times when the Library is closed.

To access databases, please enter your CCBC email and password and be ready to sample a wealth of information to support your assignments. If this does not work, please call the Library's circulation desk at 724-480-3442 or email the helpdesk to reset at
