Clinical Research: PCC Library databases

This guide is to help students in PCC's Clinical Research course to find and understand professional and research literature.

PCC Library databases

PCC Library databases are available to currently enrolled PCC students, and PCC staff and faculty, from on- or -off-campus. These are subscription bibliographic databases for which the PCC Library pays, and they are restricted to PCC affiliated folks.

To access from off-campus, you will be prompted to log in with your MyPCC user name and password.

Databases -- peer-reviewed research articles

Background information

Google Scholar

Google Scholar searches the web for scholarly articles, reports, books, and other materials, including articles in PCC Library databases.

From home, you will need to set your Google Scholar preferences to access PCC Library resources. See Using Google Scholar for directions on how to set your Google Scholar preferences at home.

Once you've linked Google Scholar to PCC Library on your computer, if PCC has access to an article, a "Find it @ PCC" link will appear to the right of the search result. Click “Find it @ PCC” to go to the library catalog where you will be offered a choice to view the article.
