San Jose Campus, Swisher Library: Research

The Bolles School San Jose Campus Swisher Library

Online Research Libraries

Many research institutions, academic institutions, and government agencies create accessible databases that contain articles, documents and datasets on any given area of exploration and interest; when these databases and their contents are freely available they are referred to as open access.  

Alternatively, institutions and agencies create research databases are only available via subscription; they are often curated for subject-specific deep dive research endeavors and require users to login using a paywall, username or password.   

Below, students have access to a suite of subscription research databases as well as suggested open access resources.  After graduation, students are encouraged to make use of their University or public library systems.
