Introducing JSTOR!

In conjunction with our new EZ Proxy software, we are now proud to announce the addition of JSTOR to the many other research databases that we offer at the WCC Library.  JSTOR “offers a high-quality, interdisciplinary archive to support scholarship and teaching. It includes archives of over one thousand leading academic journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as select monographs and other materials valuable for academic work. The entire corpus is full-text searchable, offers search term highlighting, includes high-quality images, and is interlinked by millions of citations and references.”

If you have any questions about JSTOR or need any help in accessing or searching the database, please contact us at 919-739-6891, or ext. 6891 on-campus, or


Hello World! Announcing EZ Proxy!

Welcome to the new Wayne Community College Library blog! This blog will have information about special events, classes, databases, services and other exciting things going on the WCC Library. Laptop We are excited to announce a new way for you to access the many research databases we have here at the WCC Library.

Starting Monday August 3rd, 2009 you will be able to access the databases using just your library card barcode. We are now using a service called EZ Proxy and you will no longer have to worry about remembering one or more user names and passwords.

If you do not have a library card barcode, you will want to make sure that you get one. You can get a library card barcode at the Library Circulation desk. If you have any questions about EZ Proxy, ask a library staff member at the Circulation desk, call us at 919.739.6891, or ext. 6891 on-campus, or drop us an e-mail at
