TIP #2 – You can access the library’s databases from home:
Our library databases contain thousands of newspaper, magazine, and journal articles (Information that you can trust!). You can access this information while using a computer in the library or in another location on campus. You can also access this information from home by entering your user name and password — the same user name and password that you use for My VWCC. Check out the databases that are available to you: http://infoguides.virginiawestern.edu/az.php
