Databases & Indexes

Find the best library databases for your research.



Starting in January 2024, our library's online resources will now be accessed exclusively through OpenAthens, which has been running side by side with EZproxy for the last 1.5 years. Ezproxy will no longer be available. Please update bookmarks, saved links, and reading list links, and refer to the “Remote Access to Library Resources via OpenAthens Guide” for more details.

LIBRARY REQUESTS: Use the Healey Library Requests Form to request items for purchase, course reserves, or digitization.
