Database Intro Guide

Learn how to use Western Library databases to find articles and video for homework and research assignments.

Always Look for the Permanent Link

Most of our library resources are paid for by Western Technical College and our subscriptions require that users be associated with Western. That means you'll have to log in to use most of our resources. That also means that you'll need to use special permanent links to have library content link correctly in an assignment, email, notes document, etc. 

In general, look for an option in the database that says "permalink," "permanent link," "save link," or or something similar instead of copying the URL from the address bar of your browser. 

The image shows the permalink option available in EBSCO databases. That is the link you will want to use.
