New Online Resources @ the Library

Get a jump on your Fall 2011 coursework! We have two new online research products available to Palomar students and faculty

Films On Demand offers over 6,000 current, educational streaming videos (produced by Films for the Humanities) covering a variety of disciplines and subjects. Users can create personal playlists incorporating full-length videos or segments, and embed segments into courseware such as Blackboard. NOTE: embedded videos only work with flash technology at this time, and will not work with Windows Media or Quicktime. Additional technical specifications can be found at http://digital.films.com/Common/Documents/FOD_Technical_Requirements.pdf

ScienceDirect Health & Life Sciences Collection offers full-text coverage of hundreds of scholarly journals in disciplines such as nursing, biology, allied health professions, and many more. The research included in these publications is relevant to a variety of other subjects as well, including geography and GIS. This database was paid for with an NSF grant awarded to Professor Wing Cheung from Palomar College's Geography Department.

Any of these resources may be accessed by clicking the above links or from the Library’s database web page where you'll find additional information (Palomar College e-services login required off-campus). For more help, please contact Tamara Weintraub, Collection Management/Subscriptions Librarian.
