1. You can’t see most of our books, videos or journals when you walk into the library. The ACC Library web site has thousands of ebooks, articles, films, and more available 24/7 from any device.
2. You are supposed to ask a librarian for help when you begin a research assignment- and most of your professors also start their research projects at the reference desk.
3. College library web sites have tutorials to help you with assignments, research and plagiarism from home.
4. Colleges can borrow materials from other colleges/universities for – so you have access to other libraries when you are a college student.
5. Since you have access to so much - you need to plan ahead to complete research assignments. Most students begin their research at least 3 weeks before their paper is due. That gives you time to get everything you need to make a good grade on your paper.
I am supposed to only use peer-reviewed or scholarly journals for my research paper- what are they and how do I find them?
