About Library Resources

When doing research, nearly anything can be a source. If you wanted a first-person account of someone's experience living during the Great Depression, an e-mail from a grandparent is just as valid a source as a formally published autobiographical book. Libraries specialize in the collection and organization of formally published works. Here at HACC, we purchase access to these publications so that you don't have to! We offer nearly 100 databases to help you find something that has been formally published as a book, article, or visual media. Included on this page is a small sample of the resources we have available in some of these categories. When accessing most of these resources from off-campus, you will be asked to enter your myHacc log-in information.
