Using Library Resources: Library Orientation

This guide provides information about the Central Community College libraries and the resources we offer. It includes tutorials showing how to access and use the catalog, the databases, and other resources for purposes of research and finding information.

What to expect . . .

   A library orientation session introduces students to the resources available in the library. We can tailor the session to meet particular class objectives. Students will learn the basics regarding library services and resources, including library web site navigation; finding a book or other print resources in the CCC libraries, and the basics of constructing an efficient search strategy.

   In addition, students will learn the difference between popular magazines and scholarly journals; all the tools involved in finding just the right article in the databases; and the steps involved in evaluating a web site.

One-On-One Session

   The library staff is happy to provide a one-on-one session with a student to help them better understand the resources available in the library. We can help students develop better research strategies and help them incorporate different kinds of materials into their research projects.
