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 EBSCO.com, ProQuest.com, 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 click on the name of a database from the Library's Databases page, you will get a log in prompt asking for your LAST NAME and STUDENT ID, which looks like this:
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.
