Finding Research Articles & Books

  • Search the Online Catalog to find out what books are available at the VC/UHV Library
  • Using other libraries (other than UH System) requires a Texshare card. You can request one online. UHV students may borrow from any UH System library by presenting their student id card and proof of current enrollment (such as a printout from PeopleSoft).
  • Most of our online journal indexes and databases are available to distance learners. Your student email account username and password is required. Information about student email accounts may be found at:
  • Victoria College Student Accounts
  • University of Houston-Victoria Student Accounts
  • Links to online journal indexes and databases can be found at the Library's home page. Online resources may be chosen by subject categories or alphabetically. Study guides are available for many of the databases.


Use our Journals List to determine if the citation you have found is available to you. The Journals List details all journals available at the VC/UHV Library regardless of format (print, microform, electronic).
