Database Tutorials and Guides

Database Vendor Tutorial Videos, Guides, Links, PDFs & More


Need tools to help you learn your way around the MCC library databases?  Here you can find dozens of vendor-created flash tutorials, video demonstrations, product tours, and printable user guides. 

Navigate among the database resources using the tabs to the left. Most tabs also hold a search widget for that database.  Each tab provides links to the databases themselves.

Check back often for newly added training and support tools.

For in-person assistance please contact a librarian in the library (2nd floor, Reference Desk), by phone (480-461-7682) or via Ask A Librarian, a 24/7/365 chat application.
