Academic databases are organized digital collections of information.
The Databases A-Z page includes the complete list of all databases we have access to at Pierce. For help using one of these databases, click on its name from the menu on the left.
Each database we have includes unique content or covers different time periods. Databases may include ebooks, videos, and periodicals (like scholarly journals, newspapers, and magazines). Periodicals, like the Los Angeles Times for example, are made up of many different articles.
