Article Databases & e-Resources

NEW – Search these databases from off-campus with your PORTAL login Info (Portal email and Portal password). Only students registered for the current sessions at COA (and COA employees) will have access to these databases from off-campus. Trouble-Shooting Tips If the page won’t load, try deleting your browser history, using a private browser window or switching browsers. If you are enrolled at another Peralta campus (not COA), then you must use that Library’s webpage to access their databases.  If accessing from outside the U.S., access to our Library Databases may be restricted by that country’s firewall.   For further online help using the databases, chat with a librarian and/or check out our database tutorials.
