Why the Library?


This library guide will help you with your research project in ENG 1A where you will work with primary and secondary sources. Your course readings of A Dream Called Home and Enrique's Journey will act as your springboard to this project. You will need to gather materials through an interview and gather, synthesize, and cite from a variety of different written sources (secondary sources).;

Why the library?

When you search Google or other free search engines, you are only searching a small fraction of all of the information in existence.  There is much of the web that these search engines just cannot access.  Unlike these search engines, the library, through its online and physical collections, provides access to costly published materials, like books and articles that Google cannot provide access to, due to copyright restrictions. Published materials have gone through the expense and editing of the publishing process, which lends them a higher credibility (and expense). The college library specializes in providing you with free & efficient access to the expensive scholarly information that you need to use for academic research projects.
