To get to a database, first go to the Online Library at http://www.esc.edu/library. If you are using a Screenreader, go to the Links list.
The main part of the library web site is divided into three sections: Library Resources, Learn, and SUNY Empire Library Blog. For this, you want the section called Library Resources, which is on the left and the first in terms of tab order.
You can choose from Article Databases, Books, Dictionaries and Encyclopedias, Multimedia, and Newspapers. If you choose one, you will still be able to get to the others. Here is a screenshot:
At the top left there is a pull-down Subject menu. (If you are using a Screenreader, this is a Combo Box.)
You can select any area of study and that will refresh the database list to only include databases that are good for searching in that subject area.
Just to the right of that, there is another pull-down menu for Database Types. (If you are using a Screenreader, this is a Combo Box.)
You can select any type of database including Articles and more, Ebooks, Reference, News, Multimedia, Reports, etc. That will refresh the database list to include only databases of the type you selected.
Here is a screenshot.
Once you click on the name of a database, you will be taken to the college's login screen. Enter the same college username and password that you use for MYESC and your SUNY Empire online courses and click Login.
