As a UH student you have access to thousands of online journal articles through our subscription databases. All UH libraries provide access to the EBSCO Host databases, which include Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete, CINAHL, Health Source Nursing, Professional Development Collection (education), GreenFile, and many others.
UH Manoa, UH Hilo, and UH West Oahu subscribe to unique databases that support their programs and courses, and that may not be available to UH System students from other campuses. Distance students taking courses at these campuses can access these databases by using the library websites at their respective campuses, because many of these databases are not available through the Kauai CC library website.
For students taking Kauai CC distance courses, all the databases on the A - Z database list are available for off-campus access, including these popular EBSCO databases:

You must enter your public library card number and your pin number (usually the last 4 digits of your phone number).
