Why the Library --- Research for the Applied Associates Degree in Radiography

Students in the LLCC Radiography Program conduct academic research to write papers and build presentations in several classes throughout the course of the program, including:

  • ​RAD 110  
  • RAD 210 and
  • RAD 220.


This guide uses the internet to connect you with SUBSCRIPTION DATABASES. Information in subscription databases is preferred over internet research because the articles contained in Subscription databases are scholarly PRINT resources which have been converted for digital access. That means, when you use a database, you are not getting WEBSITES as your results.

Using the SUBSCRIPTION DATABASES linked (on this guide and/or the library homepage) means your sources will be high quality ACADEMIC & SCHOLARLY sources. See the blue tab (above) labeled "Subscription Databases" to learn more and access the links. Use your standard LLCC username and password in the grey login box that pops up. 

Navigate using the blue tabs above to see information about other resources as well, such as Books, E-books, Streaming video and more. 

NOTE: Anatomy & Physiology Models are available in the library for hands-on use.
