State Funds Provide Community Colleges with Additonal EBSCO Databases

Electronic Books

Here at Cerritos College our total number of EBSCO databases has grown by fifteen! Our selection now includes new subject specific databases in the fields of business, the military, philosophy, psychology, and religion.  In addition, ERIC and MEDLINE, two US government resources, are now searchable with the easy-to-use EBSCO interface.

Take these new databases for a test ride now and discover all they have to offer.  Or contact Lorraine Gersitz at ext 2414 to schedule an appointment for you or your class.
