Open Access Databases

All of the San Jose State University Library's databases are available in the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library to students, faculty, staff and the community.  However, off campus, these databases are limited to students, faculty and staff of San Jose State University. The database, ERIC from the US Department of Education is freely available to all and requires no password.  And the database, Google Scholar, is also freely available and is rich in indexing education journals.
