You can access these databases from many places on the Ryan Library home page, including:

  • Choose a specific database from our alphabetical list of All Databases.
  • Choose all of our EBSCO databases by using the search box in the Articles tab under Quick Search Tools.
  • Choose "Research Guides" and select a discipline or course to see recommended databases.

If prompted, simply enter your PLNU network ID username and password.     

Here is an example:
