If you are trying to get into the article databases from home, you must start from the DVC Library's Databases page. You cannot go directly to,, or a link from a Google search, since the system won't know you are affiliated with DVC when you try to log in.

Once you enter this information, you will have full access to this database.


If you are having trouble accessing the databases from off-campus, please contact a librarian and let them know your name and student ID, and what sort of error message you are receiving.
