Articles

Students are able to access electronic articles (journal, newspaper, and magazine) from off-campus using our databases.  A list of databases, you have access to can be found by using the Databases, eBooks, and Media quick link on the library homepage

If you don't know which databases to search, use the Research Guide for your class or subject area.  Click on the "Articles" tab on that guide, and choose one of the databases listed to search for articles. 

Remember, if you are trying to access the databases off-campus, you will be required to login using your Union username and password

Check out streaming videos (either for fun or for research purposes) from Films on Demand.  Films on Demand features thousands of streaming educational videos and segments that you can use for research assignments. 

You may also want to try the Films on Demand App available for both Apple and Android devices. You will need to create an account on a computer first by visiting Films on Demand and choosing the sign up button under "your profile." Use your Union username and password when creating your account.

Creating an account allows you to save videos and create watchlists.
