Accessing the CCCOnline Library

The CCCOnline Library is excited to provide student access to databases for nearly every academic area! Each research database provides access to scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles, streaming academic videos, primary sources, images, newspaper articles, and more. Featured databases include: Academic Search Complete, Business Source Premier, Literature Reference Center Plus, CINAHL Plus with Full Text,  Films on Demand, and Social Science Premium Collection.

We’ve made accessing the databases easier than ever! 

Please note: you must be enrolled in a CCCOnline course to access the CCCOnline Library databases.

  1. Select a subject or vendor from the filters on the Research Databases webpage.
  2. Access a database by selecting the Database Login icon, or click on the title for additional information. 
  3. Enter your S# when prompted.


Welcome to the APA Citation Toolkit! This has been designed to answer many of your common citation questions. Do you have a question that isn't listed here, but should be? Send me an email (! I'll answer your question privately within 48 hours, and make an addition to this toolkit so others can benefit, too!

If you have an immediate need, be sure to check out these two references: 

  1. Purdue OWL--The Purdue OWL is commonly accepted as the toolkit for deciphering MLA and APA formatting and style requirements. It's created and updated by the Purdue Online Writing Lab. This is often the fastest, most reliable reference for your citation questions as it's online and available 24/7!
  2. Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition) -- This manual is the text authority on all things APA. The 6th edition is the most current, and therefore supersedes any earlier version. This is the most thorough resource available. As this is a book, you may not have access to it right away--but your local library or home college library will definitely have a copy.

If you're also looking for answers to questions about MLA style, please visit the MLA Citation Toolkit!
