Resources for Academic Research
The Library offers online, in-person and for-credit options to build your research skills using the Library resources available to you.
Sign up for an appointment. You may make an appointment up to two weeks in advance.
Journals, magazines, newspapers, ebooks, films, and other sources are available online any time. You can access the Los Rios Databases from anywhere you have an Internet connection.
Online research guides will help you get started on your next assignment. Browse the guides by subject, course, or instructor to find recommended research strategies, books, databases, websites, and more.
Our Canvas-based Path to Information Literacy Online Tutorials (PILOT) will help you gain insight into the research process, develop effective research strategies, and become familiar with the Library’s primary research tool, OneSearch.
MLA, APA, Chicago, and NLM style guides are available to help you accurately document your research.
When we don’t have an item, we’ll try to get it for you.
Special Collections collects records of the college, unique local artifacts, and other materials documenting the history of the college and surrounding area, and makes them available to the college community and external researchers.
