New Databases: NewsBank and Nature

ECC Library has added two new databases this semester: NewsBank and Nature.

NewsBank is now your go-to source for the Chicago Tribune. You can even access articles from today’s edition! ECC Library patrons now have access valuable local and national information from the Chicago Tribune through this database instead of ProQuest. Patrons can still use ProQuest to access other newspapers (such as The New York Times and Wallstreet Journal) as well as scholarly journals, magazines, and trade publications.


Our other new database is Nature. This database allows ECC patrons electronic access to articles published within the last 4 years of the weekly science journal Nature. Keep up with the lastest in scientific research!

Login for both these databases is required when accessing them from off-campus. Contact the ECC Library for more information on registering your bardcode with the library.
