E-Resources at Hekman

For distance-learning students, electronic resources can be even more important than print, as a more easily accessible source of research and information. Hekman Library has over 36,000 e-journals and over 100 subscription databases, as well as hundreds of thousands of ebooks - most of these are indexed in the library catalog, but there are a few specific tools on the library homepage to explore e-journals and databases specifically.
