Online Tools Help You Find Books and Articles

The Library provides many online tools that help you find books and articles at Palomar College or other nearby libraries:

  • For searching and gathering documents across multiple databases, try our federated search engine. One nice feature is the ability to simultaenously search the library book catalogs of Palomar, MiraCosta, CSUSM, SDSU, USD, UCSD, San Diego County Library system, and our online e-book collection. Select Library Books & Media at the search screen.
  • If you’re want to locate a specific journal, magazine, or newspaper, search our periodical website. This quickly tells you whether we have it online or in hardcopy. It also lets you connect to most online articles right away (for hardcopy titles, it will tell you which issues we have on the shelf).

Still can't find what you're looking for? Request an interlibrary loan (see post below).

These tools may be used in the Library or from any on-campus computer. Off-campus or through the campus wireless network requires a Palomar e-services or network login. More

Contact Tamara Weintraub, Serials Librarian, with any questions, comments, or recommendations.
