You are probably familiar with the Kirkwood Library Services website where you find books, ebooks, scholarly journals, and all kinds of databases, but the library has a lot more online than that. 

You can request books and articles we don’t own right through the catalog (for purchase or to borrow from another library). 

Are you taking full advantage of our resources? Confused about what we have? Click on the chat box to ask a librarian.

Have you taken the time to explore our databases? We have a LOT more than scholarly articles. Learning Express helps with studying for big tests like the TEAS and ACCUPLACER and other specialized, standardized tests and has online tutorials to learn different computer programs. 

Transparent Language Online teaches you to speak other languages. Naxos lets you stream classical and jazz music. Films on Demand and Kanopy let you stream films and documentaries.

 We offer full text access to individual titles like Chronicle of Higher Education and the New York Times. Take the time to read through our list.

Have you signed up to get notices for our blog? From research and tech tips to lists of new books on different topics to updates on library hours, there’s always something interesting on the blog. Go ahead and sign up to get notifications. 

Have you found us on Facebook? Like our Facebook page. We don’t post too much, but we do notify you of all blog posts and the most useful articles we find helping students and around the web. 

Have you followed us on Twitter? It’s a bit more active than our Facebook page. Find not only our original tweets, but retweets about books, words, reading, and Kirkwood.

Have you found us on YouTube? The major theme on our YouTube page is citation. 

If you’re having trouble understanding something about MLA or APA this is a good place to start. We’re in the process on working on some new videos. What would you like to know more about?

So while we’re always glad to see your smiling faces here in the library, make sure you’re using all the resources we have on line. To access these resources and more visit www.kirkwood.edu/library.
