Library Databases

Our library databases are up and running! You can access them using your LancerPoint username and password -- the same login you use for Canvas. Our databases offer magazine, newspaper, and scholarly journal articles. But did you know they also contain primary sources, videos, art and photography images and encyclopedia/reference material?
