Interlibrary Loan

If you need a book that the JSCC Library doesn't own, please contact Vanessa Jones
Provide her with the author, title, date of publication and publisher.

The Library then asks another library to loan us the book.  We use the Online College Library Center to connect us to most academic libraries in the country.

It takes about 2 weeks for a book to be sent here from another library.

Difference Between Primary and Secondary Sources

Using Google Scholar to find Journal Articles on Manifest Destiny

Google Scholar provides access to scholarly articles dealing with Manifest Destiny.  Some of the articles are not available in full-text. 

You will see the designation "Eresources at JSCC" when the article is in the JSCC Library. 

Also you can click on JSTOR and get those articles from the JSCC Library.   Other articles will be available, but not all are in full text.
