SIRS is a Wake Tech subscription database, not a part of NC LIVE.  This resource requires your key account information (same user ID and password as Blackboard and WebAdvisor) to access from off-campus.

SIRS Researcher (SIRS) provides online access to full-text articles and Internet resources from SIRS reference databases. These include but are not limited to General Reference, Social Issues, Health, Science, Business, the Environment, Global Issues, Human Relations, and Institutions.

The majority of the articles you will find in this database are not considered scholarly since they are mostly from magazines and newspaper sources.

Off-Campus Access

In order to use the research databases, you will need to access them through the links on the library site or through this guide, not by typing the web addresses (e.g., www.nclive.org) directly into your browser; then you will be directed to a login page where you'll need to enter your key account login and password (same login used for accessing Blackboard, WebAdvisor, and my.waketech e-mail accounts).
