How to Find Library/Web Sources

Find book, ebooks, academic articles, news, magazines, encyclopedias, and streaming video on the Library website.

Visit the Library Research Tutorial to find how to research at the UCC Library and on the web. 

If you're interested in specific journals, see the Find Journals page. 

Research Help

We are available to help you and your students find resources -- whether from the library or on the web. We can help your students with understanding their assignment instructions, narrowing a topic and coming up with a research question, finding and evaluating sources, reading through the sources to understand them, and citing them in APA or MLA format. 

We can usually be found in the library, but feel free to make an appointment. We are also available by phone or email.

Library Collection Requests

Does the UCC Library have the print and online collections to support your students' learning? Are you unsure of what we have and want to check with us?

Are there web (non-library) resources (e.g, census data) that your students could use for their assignments? Would a library research guide and/or an information literacy presentation teaching them how to search for, evaluate, and use these resources be helpful?

Please complete the form below and we'll follow-up with you!
