Accessing Resources in Databases

Many of the library resources can be searched together through the library’s General Search. However, if you are interested in a more limited search, or want to access resources not found in the General Search, you can access databases individually.

Please note, when accessing databases from off campus you will need to login using your ECU email user name and password. For the full list of databases the library offers please visit the A-Z Database List on the library home page.

Accessibility features in databases

  • Large print and text to speech
    • Download the article PDF to zoom in on text or have read by a screen reader
    • In the HTML view of articles there is often an option to play the text and download as an audio file at the top of the article. Open the settings to change the speed, reader, or text highlighting options.
  • Video databases
    • The ECU Library provides access to education streaming video databases, which you find in the A-Z Database list. Most of these videos will have closed captioning options.
