There are several types of information available to students through the ACC libraries, both in print form and electronically. Details provided on the different types of resources are listed below:
|Books||You can find a wealth of resources in the library's book collection. A book can provide detailed background information on a topic.|
|Reference Books||Encyclopedias, atlases, dictionaries, etc. are considered reference sources. Access these types of resources when you need to find definitions, biographies, overviews, and historical information.|
|Articles||Articles can be found in journals, magazines, or newspapers. Articles can vary in scope, but usually fall into one of two categories: scholarly and popular.|
|Web Sites||The internet can provide a wealth of information, especially from government sources and professional organizations. Be sure to carefully evaluate the information found here.|
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.
