WCC Single Search

The Wayne Community College Library has a new feature on our main webpage. WCC Single Search is an integrated database search for both WCC library databases and NC LIVE databases. You can enter a search term in the main search box, choose a category and find resources via the EBSCOhost Integrated Search.

The file box on the main page also has a tab to search the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC). Journals A-Z is a search for any journal or magazine title that the library owns, as well as all those that are available in the library databases. The last tab has Other Resources including other searchable databases, Internet Resources and Subject Bibliographies.

Give the new Single Search a try! If you have any questions or comments about the new WCC Single Search, please contact WCC Library staff at 919-739-6891 (ext. 6891 on-campus), or at wcc-library@waynecc.edu.
