Database Help: About this guide

Find answers to your questions on the library's online resources, including databases.

   The Database Help guide provides resources to help users access and use the online subscription resources provided by Thigpen Library. This guide is not a comprehensive how-to resource; it simply answers common questions and provides solutions to common problems. The databases themselves provide tips and tutorials on how to effectively use the resource. Look for the help button when using a database

Online computer help for students

Use Vol State's Knowledge Base, maintained by the IT department, for resources that solve common tech issues.

eLearn is the name of the Vol State course management system. It is a platform where connections are made between students, faculty, and course materials. This is where "online" classes happen. Distributed Education provides resources to help with eLearn issues and learn how to use the system.
