- JSCC Library Online Catalog
The JSCC Library Online Catalog provides access to printed and electronic books available in the JSCC Library.
To check out a book from the library, you will need your JSCC photo ID.
You can look at electronic books right on your computer. If you are on campus, you can read them right away, but if you are off-campus, you will be asked for your Netlogon. (the way you log on to computers on campus)
Google Books allows you to look at excerpts of books in many different subject areas. You cannot print or cut and paste from Google Books, just read the texts.
However, books from Google Books can be requested through the JSCC Libray interlibrary loan service. It takes about 2 weeks to get a book back from another library, so please give yourself some time.
To get help in finding information:
- Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine
Includes information on more than 1,600 medical disorders and concepts. Each article includes in-depth discussion of causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatments, procedures, and other related topics. Written for a general audience with an authoritative tone.
Google Scholar provides references to scholarly journal articles. In some cases the full-text of the article is provided, but mostly just citations are given.
Interlibrary Loan may be needed for some of these references.
- Academic OneFile
Academic OneFile is a source for peer-reviewed, full-text articles from the world's leading journals and reference sources.
