UX Design & Usability: Finding Articles

Connecting From Off-Campus

You will need to know your 7-digit College ID to connect to most of our resources from off-campus.

Not sure what your ID number is? Go to MYCSTATE & use the link for "Look Up Username/Reset Your Cincinnati State Password" to retrieve it. Watch our "Looking Up Your College ID" video for more instructions.

Demographics& Psychographics

These online resources may be helpful for finding information relevant to Cincinnati State's population. You may find additional, previous demographic reports by Googling ("Cincinnati State" demographics)--putting "Cincinnati State" in quotes will keep our search results more relevant to our college.

The Library databases below may have additional information on web users--try searching for the population type to find more information about their needs.
