Early College High School/Dual Credit-High School Librarians and the ACC Library: ACC Library Resources for My Course

This is a guide to ACC library resources for High School librarians who serve students also taking classes at Austin Community College.

Does the library offer many subject-specific resources?

ACC Librarians have created web pages for your subject area and courses. Below you will find:

  • Subject Guides: Library resources, recommended websites, research help for your subject area such as Accounting
  • Class Guides: Provide the details of an assignment for your course, and a librarian will build a page to support your student's work, or adapt an existing guide to better meet your needs. See examples for your discipline and others
  • Library Guides: Getting started with college research assignments, helpful instructions for your students, how to cite sources 
  • Information Plus Guides: Technology guides, local information guides and resources for special populations at ACC

We can custom-create a guide for your Subject area or Class- just ask us

Example: How to Find Literary Criticism:
