Finding Background Information

If you don't know much about your topic, Encyclopedias are a good place to start. They provide broad overviews and background information.

If you can make it in to campus you can look up your topic in one of our RTF encyclopedias.

If you can't make it to campus, try one of our online Encyclopedias:

Radio-Television-Film Apps

Apps (little software applications) allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based. Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. Listed, you will find some app recommendations we have come up with through trial, error, and our own experiences.

ACC Library Services does not endorse any fee-based apps nor it is liable for reimbursement of any apps paid for by patrons. Please refer to the Tablet Circulation Policy for further details.
