Why Use Library Databases?

24/7 Access to Library Research Databases

Find articles, e-books, streaming video & music in LSCS Libraries' research databases. This guide includes databases available to all LSC-Kingwood students, faculty & staff.

If you are not on a LSCS campus, select any database and enter your 14-digit libray barcode number found on the back of your LSCS ID. For most databases, you may also use the alternate link  for "LSC-Jakarta and LSC-Online" and login using your MyLoneStar username and password.

NOTE: Off-campus access to select databases requires a library barcode number issued by LSC-Kingwood Library.

No ID? Complete this form and receive a barcode via your LSCS email!
