As we move forward, the CR Library is continuing to evolve and change the ways we interact with the campus community to meet ever-changing demands for high-quality information and research skills.
LIBR 5 - Research Skills
Sessions are tailored to specific needs of a class:
Online modules covering basic concepts of research and information use
Academic Video Online (AVON)
AVON is a streaming video database from Alexander Street Press, and will be available as of January 1. With over 68,000 titles including exclusive content not available elsewhere, and a pricing model that allows us to build a permanent collection of streaming media over time, we believe that this product will provide better support for the instructional needs of the college. Content is captioned, and videos are segmented so you can use a short section or the complete title.
A new way to connect to library resources! OneSearch's (our name for ExLibris's Primo library catalog) is a "Discovery" platform that searches books, articles, databases, open-access resources, and more from a single search interface. 110 community colleges around the state are all migrating to this platform simultaneously, and the system is "going live" for Spring Semester 2020.
