Brand new! We have created an online Information Literacy tutorial that you can embed directly into your D2L course! You can preview the course here.
An Online Librarian is available to be embedded into your D2L course. Using the Discussion area, we are available to chat with the students about topic development, evaluating sources, navigating our databases and more! To set up this highly customizable service, contact us.
Request an Article or Resource
You can receive items not held at the CCA Library by using our simple Article Request and Interlibrary Loan Request forms. Articles can be received via email in approximately 3 days. Physical items usually take 7 to 10 days.
Place materials specific to your courses on reserve so your students can find them easily. Materials can be checked out for 30 minutes, 2 hours, or overnight. Students can search the online course reserves system by your class name.
