How to access ProQuest articles listed below

The ProQuest article links listed on this page will require a login and password from Central Piedmont Community College to access. However, you may be able to access the same articles through your own local public library. I've specifically listed a few links below to get you connected with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library. If you are from outside this area, contact your own local public library to find out what resources are available, so you may gain access through them. ProQuest is a service used by many libraries.

Just something interesting... :)
