The Perks of Working from Home

We know how great it is to come to the library to study, read, write papers, and work on projects.  It’s an amazing place!  But sometimes life gets in the way of our best intentions.  Maybe you can’t make it in to the library before it closes.  Perhaps you’re most productive between midnight and 3 a.m.  If that’s the case the library is still very much available to you!

We have resources that are available 24/7 to help support your research needs.  We have close to 30,000 ebooks – all of which are accessible by either searching the library catalog or looking in the “Ebooks from EBSCO” database.  One of the many perks of ebooks is that you don’t have to come to the library to read them, you can read them from home!

Speaking of databases, all of our databases are available whenever you need them.  All you have to do is head to the Library Databases page, find the database that best suits your needs, and start looking for articles.  A large number of the articles are available full-text online – we do what we can to make your life easier.  Just remember, you will have to login with your SCC ID number, followed by the letters “SC” (ex. 01234567SC) and then your last name in order to get into the databases and start searching.

The library homepage also has help if you’re working on citations and aren’t quite sure of the proper format.  Head to our Citing Sources page for guidance.

We try to make your research process as smooth as possible by offering you this kind of 24/7 access.  And remember, the librarians are here to help you as long as the library’s open so please stop by and let us know how we can help!

Happy studying!
