Students and faculty at Alliant’s Los Angeles Library have access to a variety of electronic indexes and databases, many of which include full-text articles and books. Databases such as Academic Search Premier, Business Source Complete and PsycINFO are available on public-access computers in the Library and may be searched, via the Web, from students’ homes and offices.
