More Databases You Might Find Useful

Despite having a very large collection of materials in NC LIVE, there are some subjects here at Wake Tech that are not covered, such as social issues, science and history.  These databases here are selected and purchased for you by Wake Tech and should help you when NC LIVE doesn't have the answers.

Off-Campus Access to the Library Databases
