NEW VIDEOS!  Introduction To Online Resources:

Ebsco Discovery Service (EDS) is a tool that lets you search more than one database for different types of items at a time by simply typing a search term in the box below. To search just articles, click the Peer Reviewed box. To search books in the HELM catalog, click Catalog Only. Click here to Read further about EDS or watch these Ebsco's Video or BCC's Video. You can also access articles, eBooks and videos in individual Databases through the A – Z Database page on the left.

  • *IMPORTANT:  Because of renovations to the Library building, starting on September 5, 2023 Library Services, the Digital Commons and Tutoring are in SBA. The Library is processing ID cards, providing reserve textbooks, current print periodicals and help with research and databases. Testing is in Field  202 – near the TRIO space.
  • There will also be a Library outreach presence in the Connector on Thursdays and on most Tuesday afternoons.
  • We are currently NOT lending most print books from our lower level collection.  (You can still borrow reserves.) Contact a Librarian to find out about ILLs and Holds.
  • NEED TO RETURN A BOOK? We will be accepting these in the temporary Library on the ground floor of SBA.
