It's easy to access QCC's databases from home, where you can find scholarly journalibrary homepage (there's a link to it from the left-hand column of the Q). On the library's homepage you'll see three veertical columns. "Article Databases by Title A-Z" is at the top of the middle column, and that's the link you want. When you click on it you'll see a vertical list of the library's databases in alphabetical order. When you click on one to open it, you'll be prompted to give your username (your Alden Library barcoad, which is on the back of your QCC student ID) and your username (which is your last name all in capital letters. After supplying username and password, you can select and click on the databases you want to use. For your topic, I'd suggest Academic Search Premier and Issues and Controversies, for starters.
Also on the Alden Library's hompage, just beneath the Article Databases link, is the searchbar for locating books in the Alden Library (Books in the Online Catalog).
If you need help with the databases or books you're seeking, call the Reference Desk at the Alden Library between 9:00am and 3:00 pm tomorrow (Saturday), when the library is next open, for assistance: 508.854.4366.
