Dictionaries-Encyclopedias

All online databases (except the Library Online Catalog) require a password for access. If you are accessing an online database from an HCC campus computer, authentication to the database is automatically completed.

Students, faculty and staff of Hopkinsville Community College can access the databases from off-campus computers by using their HCC-KCTCS computer account credentials (the username and password used to logon to your BlackBoard account).

Go to the HCC Research Guides Online Databases and click on the database you want to use.

The following databases are dictionaries and encyclopedias for general research.  Also, a biographical database is available here.

Search EbscoHost for the following databases:

  • Biographical Reference Bank
  • Funk and Wagnalls New World Encyclopedia
