How can my students access the Library's databases?  Do you have students who live in Henderson, North Las Vegas or Boulder City? Your student can use the statewide databases on the Search by Topic page with his/her library card. Contact Ask a Librarian - ask@lvccld.org to learn how they can access the other Library databases.

Students who live in the remaining areas of Clark County, may obtain a library card which will allow them to access all the library's databases.
