Faculty Support

Teaching faculty, try these tips and techniques to save time and get better student papers.

Why use databases?

Do you want your students to find scholarly articles, credible online sources, and books on their research topics?

Are they using Google and getting many hundreds of thousands of results, some credible, and others not? 

Google Scholar can be helpful in identifying scholarly sources, but students may be frustrated by lack of access to search results.

   How can the Library help?

Pierce Library subscribes to more than 70 databases to support educational and career success, with many articles and books available immediately online, for free, to Pierce students, staff and faculty.

   Use these databases in the Pierce Library, or log in with a Pierce ID anywhere there is an Internet connection.
