To search the LSCS databases on a personal device, you will need to enter the 14-digit library barcode located on the back of your Lone Star ID/ library card. If you do not have a Lone Star ID/ library card, use your MyLoneStar username and password by clicking the link below the barcode login (see the "How To Log In To A Database" box below). If you want to get a library barcode, fill out the Library Card Request Form.
For help using the databases, CHAT with a librarian!

Look for words such as "Limit Your Results" on the search page. It is also a good idea to limit your search to "Full Text," so that everything in your search results will include the full article.
Here is an example from Academic Search Complete:
Once you have clicked on the title of a database, you will be asked to log in. You can log in with either your Library Barcode OR your myLoneStar Username & Password.
