Intro to this Guide

Types of Resources

Listed below are descriptions of different types of resources you might use in your ACC academic journey.

Books A book can provide detailed background information on a topic. ACC Library Services have extensive physical and electronic book collections. Agricultural Sciences material is typically located in the S section of the Elgin Campus library.
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 Free or paid apps can be quite useful to access from your mobile device. A list of recommended Agricultural Science Apps are updated yearly by CropLife.
