Science Databases

These research databases are science-specific. For many topics you should also consider searching broader databases, such as those in the box below this one.

General Databases with Science Articles

These broad-based databases include lots of information on science topics.

MJC Library's Journal Title List

Search WorldCat to discover if the MJC Library can provide you with fulltext access to magazines, journals, and newspapers in print and online. To search for a specific journal title in WorldCat hover over the Modesto Junior College Library link in the top left, then click on the MJC Journal List.

Check out this WorldCat research guide to see how easy it is to search for specific journal titles.


What if MJC Doesn't Have What I Need?

  • If you find materials in WorldCat that you need, but MJC does not own them, you can simply click the Request Item button in WorldCat to have that item sent to you here at MJC.

  • If, however, you need materials that you cannot find in WorldCat, you can request them through our interlibrary loan service.


To connect to article databases or eBooks from off campus, once you click on the name of the database you will be prompted to log in with your MJC ID Number (your student # without the W or your employee #) and your six-digit birth date.
