Library Website Virtual Tour

Online Databases - here is your access
to thousands of articles and other information

Rio Hondo College Library subscribes to a number of electronic or "online" databases that contain journal, magazine and newspaper articles, literary criticism, biographical information, almanac and directory information, a complete encyclopedia and much more.

For journal articles, we recommend that you start with ProQuest or SIRS Researcher.  ProQuest is a comprehensive collection that offers access to scholarly full-text journals in a wide range of popular subject areas such as business, education, literature, political science, and the sciences. Included in ProQuest is a special add-on module of 301 journals in Psychology. SIRS Researcher is somewhat smaller, but all the articles are full-text and it includes a good range of small local and regional newspapers. It's sometimes hard to decide which database is more relevant to your needs. To help you decide, we have included a short summary that highlights each database - and you can always call or email a librarian with your questions!

To access any database from on-campus or off-campus just click on the "AccessRIO" under Online Databases.

You should arrive at a screen that lists all the databases to which you have remote access. AccessRio is available 24 hours.

There is still a great deal more to discover on the Library Web site, so let's take a better look at Guides & Instruction
