You can link to any of the WCC research databases on Blackboard.
This page will provide you with the options available to you and how to create the link for easy access on and off-campus.
To provide off-campus access to research databases, articles, and e-books you must pre-append the URL link with EZproxy address
The WCC Bailey library offers over 100 research databases that index newspapers, magazines, trade publications and journals for student research. The research databases are accessible from off-campus by login with WCC NetID and password. Students have access to the databases anytime anywhere.
There are many options available for linking the research databases to Blackboard.
Another option is to embed a link to a specific database into Blackboard.
1. From the list of research databases
2. Select the database you want to link to in Blackboard.
3. Mouse over the database name, right click and select copy shortcut.
4. Paste link in Blackbaord
It is important that you copy the ezproxy link to allow access from off campus. If it is not copied, append the Library's proxy address, https://ezproxy.wccnet.edu/login?url= to the beginning of the database URL
