Web Resources


In addition to the premium databases and e-books offered by the library, you can find many free resources on the Web to support your academic research. Merritt College librarians have compiled lists of online resources (catalogs, collections, databases, directories, websites, etc.) to assist you in finding relevant information on select topics. Click on the navigation tabs above to browse these Web resources by alphabet or by subject.

Web Resource Access

All of these Web resources are free and available to anyone with access to a computer with an Internet connection. There are twelve laptop computers in the library, which students may use for online research.

Web Resource Assistance

Librarians are available at the Reference Desk during open hours to assist you with accessing and using web sources. Please call (510) 436-2557, e-mail merrittlib@peralta.edu, or visit the Reference Desk in person.
