Online Books & Articles

Databases A-Z is a list of our online sources. Use the databases to find Articles, Books and Encyclopedias.

Databases are the best tools for student research projects. Use them On-Campus or Off-Campus.

• Each database covers a specific topic. Choose based on your research topic.
• Database articles first appeared in Magazines (general public) or Journals (scholarly).
• Many articles are full-text. If you can't find the full-text, we can get it from another library.

We offer one-on-one and in-class instruction on using the databases. For help, contact the Tech Librarians.

In-House Books & Journals

Book Catalogs are lists of traditional library materials:
Books, Journal Titles, Conference Proceedings, Maps, DVDs....

Journals A-Z is a list of all the Journals we have in full-text, whether paper and/or electronic.
• The Journals A-Z list doesn't include articles, it lists Journal Titles. For articles, see Online Books & Articles.

To borrow Books or Journals, see Borrow & Renew from Tech.

Books & Articles from Other Libraries

If you need a book or article that we don't have at Tech, we can get it from another library.

• Find Articles using the Databases A-Z.
• Find Books using the Book Catalogs.
• If it's your first time, bring your requests to the library.
• Open an InterLibrary Loan account and send the request.
