Welcome back for the Spring term! We hope you had a great winter break and are ready for another semester at FSC!
The beginning of term gives us a good opportunity for a reminder of some of the great services the library offers:
Interlibrary Loan – FSC doesn’t have the book or full-text article you’re looking for? We partner with libraries across the state (and sometimes further) to share collections so you have access to millions and millions of resources. Simply fill out the interlibrary loan form, and we can usually get articles in a few days, and books within two weeks.
Article Databases – Your professors are asking for scholarly resources, or academic journals. Where to find these? We subscribe to over 100 databases that index thousands of journals, magazines and newspapers. Some are broad (like Academic Search Premier) and some are subject specific (like SPORTDiscus). Not sure where to start? Ask a librarian!
Subject Study Guides – Your librarians have compiled useful study guides for most majors. These guides include links to FSC article databases, web links, reference book call numbers, and other important information. These guides are a great place to start research in any subject.
Librarians! – Perhaps your best resource is the person behind the desk! Not sure where to start your research? How to cite your sources? What database to use? Where to find reliable statistics? ASK US! Reference librarians are on duty most hours the library is open, and can answer questions in person, over the phone, through email, or instant message. When in doubt, ask a librarian!
Have a great term!
