Medical and Health

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).

The following databases contain wide-ranging information appropriate for medical and health research.
