Today a library can be open 24/7 for its patrons by accessing library resources online through the Internet. On campus, to access these online resources, just click on the links embedded in the database titles. Off-campus, RACC students, staff, and faculty should use the links in the Launchpad section of the myRACC portal to reach most of the library databases. There are a few databases that use passwords which are in a document under the Yocum Library section of the myRACC portal.
