How do I access the library's online resources?

To access the library’s online resources, go to the Moorpark College homepage, hover over the Quick Links tab, and select Library from the drop-down menu.  From the library homepage, click on the Databases by Subject link, and select your database.  These online materials include collections of books and periodical articles which can be printed, saved, or emailed from your workstation.  Online materials may also include audio files or video clips.  The library’s online resources are also available off campus by logging into your my.vcccd page.  From your page, click on the “Library & Learning Resources” tab; then click on the “Library Homepage” button on the left. 

How do I know which online resource is best for my research needs?
