About our Online Resources

The library offers a variety of subscription databases available for use by all students, faculty and staff at Central Penn College.

Off-campus access is available for all resources.

Clicking on the tabs above will take you to pages about each individual resource/database.  Each of those pages has a link to access the resource--just click on the resource name (see picture below). 

If you are accessing from off-campus, you might see the Single Sign-On screen--just enter your school email address and usual password.

You can also access the resources via Blackboard and from the library's website.

If you need help using these databases or are having trouble accessing these resources, please contact a librarian for assistance.

If you are searching for books available at the library, please check the library's Online Catalog.
