Why use the databases?

Just doing a Google search probably won't be good enough for your research. The articles found through library databases will be more credible and scholarly.  The databases will also save you the extra step of making sure your sources are valid. For more information, see our Library Databases vs. the Web handout.

Librarians' top database picks

PubMed is another option from the US National Library of Medicine.  It comprises more than 28 million citations for biomedical information from MEDLINE, life science journals and online books.

Search tips

Database searching is not like searching Google.  To retrieve more relevant search results, see our Online Search Techniques handout and check out the video tutorial on this page.

Off-Campus Access to Library Databases

Use MyReynolds username and password to access library databases from off-campus.  If you click on any Reynolds Library database link from off-campus, you will get a Virginia's Community Colleges login screen first.  Login with the same username and password you use for accessing any services through My Reynolds (e.g., Canvas). After you login, you will get the database search screen.

If you are a student currently enrolled in a Reynolds course, and cannot login from off campus, please email Will Weaver (Web Services Librarian) at or call 804.523.5323.
