Quick Tips

Accessing the MDC Databases

  • Access the databases available through MDC by selecting More Databases on the MDC Learning Resources Library webpage.

  • Search the databases by subject.

  • Try different keywords and add more than one in order to narrow down or focus the results.

  • Be sure to add the following filters to your searches, Full Text and Scholarly or Peer Reviewed when applicable.

Logging In

  • Borrower ID - Student number (located on your MDC ID or class schedule)

  • PIN - last four digits of Borrower ID / Student number

Researching

  • When conducting your search, remember the more keywords you use the more focused your search will be and you'll only have a few specific articles to look through rather than thousands.

  • Always select Full Text from the filters when available. This is usually located below the search fields where you enter your keywords.

Useful Tools

  • Take advantage of tools such as:

    • E-mail to send articles to yourself so as not to loose them.
