The library's research databases are where you can find credible, trustworthy sources of information to assist with research. They are provided at no extra cost to our current students, faculty, and staff. A full list of available databases can be found on our Articles: Research Databases page.
To use databases off-campus, you will be asked to log in using your SCCCD credentials (the same username and password you use to log in to Canvas or CCC email).
Search for articles from popular (magazines, newspapers) and scholarly periodicals (academic journals) using the databases below. If you are off campus, you will be asked to log in using your SCCCD credentials (the same username and password you use for Canvas or your school email).
Choose the "Browse People" link ("light bulb icon" near the top right side of the database home page); then using the "Topics" drop-down menu that appears on the left side, select "LGBTQIA+ Figures."
You may also search for biographies by entering the individual's name in the search box on the main page of the database.
