SPC 1608 (Della Costa): Finding Articles

A guide to help students conduct research in Professor Della Costa's Speech classes throughout the semester.

Accessing Databases

To access the databases to the right, log into your Atlas account and click the "Search the Library" link in the Libraries box on the left side of the page. Once the library catalog opens, you will see the "Databases A-Z" Link at the top of the page, above the search box. Then find the database you want in the alphabetical list, and connect. Click the icon below to access the Atlas login page.

Note: You may be asked to log into library resources outside of Atlas using a borrower ID and PIN. Your borrower ID is your VID (with the V) and your PIN is the last four numbers in your VID.
