Using Off Campus Resources at TCC: Main

The library resources are available from off campus

As a member of the TCC Community, you can access the TCC Library both on and off campus. Wherever you are located, the Library can support you and provide the resources you need, when you need them.

Quick Links

A-Z Database List
This is a complete list of all of the TCC online resources (free and subscription based). You can browse the list alphabetically or by subject. Login will be required for subscription resources.

A-Z Journal List/EBSCO Full Text Finder
This resource lists a couple thousand medical journals to which the library has full-text online access. The entries that have "print collection" noted, rather than a link, are journals that are sitting on the library shelves.

This extensive database constructed by the National Library of Medicine covers a wide range of medical subjects. To browse using the library's MyNCBI account, use the username tcclibrary and the password student.  To save your work, open a MyNCBI account using your own username and password.
