Librarians can help you find peer reviewed articles, trade journals, books, streaming videos, DVDs, textbooks, and other materials. Librarians are the ideal person to ask for help with academic citations such as MLA, APA, and IEEE! The library is open 8:00 – 7:00 p.m. M-TH and 8:00 – 4:30 on Friday. There are study rooms that you can book online. The library has charging stations with adapters for many cell phones and tablets. Calculators, headphones, laptops, USB drives, along with other things you can check out and take home.
This all-in-one search box finds a variety of materials in many of our resources at once, saving time and organizing search results in one place.
These are the databases that are searched all at once:
Some resources show up in the results of One Search that are independent of our database subscriptions. Here are some of those sources that are automatically searched when you use One Search. However, we do not own access to all of these. This means that you and your students may discover resources that are not available through the Ray Howard Library. Some of these are open access databases, so you and your students can access them for free. For articles from other databases, you will be able, in many cases, to order copies through Interlibrary Loan.
Take a look at the OER guide for more information. Caitlan Maxwell, the Digital Projects Librarian, is a great resource for information about Open Educational Resources, affordable textbooks, and the Faculty OER Institute at the college.
