What’s going on @t your CCCOnline Online Library?

Hi Everyone,

We’ve decided to start up a monthly blog posting on all things library at CCCOnline, so welcome to the first posting Some of this is information that you may already know, but it’s always good to be reminded of what’s out there.

CCCOnline/FRCC College Hill Article Databases:

Do you have students in the middle of a research project who are having problems finding good, solid and trustworthy information? Remember, all CCCOnline students can use the CCCOnline/FRCC College Hill article databases. Students can search on 30 different databases, including Academic Search Premier, Biomedical Reference Collection, ERIC, Business Source Premier, Consumer Health Complete, History Reference Center, Literary Reference Center, Newspaper Source, Nursing and Allied Health Collection, and more. In order to use the article databases, students will need to request a bar code and pin from the College Hill Library.

For more information, visit the Article Database information page on our student wiki ( http://www.studentwiki.ccconline.org/index.php?title=Search_Our_Online_Article_Databases).

The Research and Writing Toolkit:

Another valuable resource available to both faculty and students through our Online Library pages on the student wiki is the Research and Writing Toolkit at http://www.studentwiki.ccconline.org/index.php?title=Research_%26_Writing_Toolkit. The toolkit offers information on plagiarism, research and writing resource as well as information on different citation styles including MLA, APA, and more.

Ask a Librarian:

Two very important Ask a Librarian resources are available to CCCOnline students.

Ask Your Librarian - email service through College Hill Library (FRCC - Westminster). See http://www.frontrange.edu/form.aspx?id=2931

Ask Colorado - 24/7 Live Chat with a Librarian, an online information service provided by Colorado Libraries. See http://www.askcolorado.org/

Visit CCCOnline’s Online Library on the student wiki for more library and research resources: http://www.studentwiki.ccconline.org/index.php?title=CCCOnline%27s_Online_Library.

And, look for the “What’s going on @ your CCCOnline Online Library” post next month. If you have any questions, email me at mary.cash@cccs.edu. If I don’t know the answer to your question, I can steer you to someone who does know.

Mary Cash,
CCCOnline Instructional Designer/Library
