The HHS Library, welcomes students, faculty, and staff to utilize the wealth of information we provide which will enable them to become lifelong learners and intelligent users of information. It is our purpose to provide print resources such as books, encyclopedias, atlases, dictionaries, magazines and newspapers, as well as online resources, such as databases which cover a large variety of topics and websites which are directly connected to their research. One of our specific goals is to provide a multicultural collection which will provide every student with the resources that will enable them to be successful and knowlegeable in their pursuit to become independent contributing members of society.


Public Library Databases

Looking for something that our HHS databases just don't have? The public library has other databases, including Ebsco Host and ProQuest HIstorical Newspapers. If you don't have your own public library card yet you can access these resources with the HHS Public Library Card code. Go to the Media Center Course in Blackboard and look for the new Public Library tab. There you will find the access code to use the public library databases. You can also get your own public library card and access the databases with that number.
