What are Electronic Resources?

"Electronic resource" is the general term to describe library-related products that are in electronic format, such as:

  • Databases
  • Online reference books
  • Electronic journals
  • Electronic books
  • Digitized works

Typically these are accessed over the Internet.  If a subscription is required for access, part or all of the electronic resource will not be available unless you are on a CC computer, you have a CC login, or have been set up with a special login & password.

These examples are NOT electronic resources:

  • Print newspaper
  • Paper magazine or journal
  • Books you can physically hold (without printing it out first)
