All databases listed below are available to JIBC students and faculty.  If you are off-campus please contact the Library for a username and password for restricted databases 

Database Search Tips

1. Use the at the end of a word to find all endings: 

2. Use OR when you're not sure what terms to use: 

3. Use AND for fewer, but more precise, hits.  For best results, use the separate search boxes and the drop-down AND in ADVANCED SEARCH
