WHAT ARE "LIBGUIDES"?
Also known as Subject Guides or Research Guides, these guides contain listings of recommended resources, including suggested books, databases, journals, videos, web pages and other useful resources to help students research more effectively.
How are Libguides organized?
subjects may be general
(English literature, Sociology, Nursing)
subjects may be tailored to a specific
course or assignment
(SDV 100, ENF3, PSY200, Argument Essay)
subjects may be topically organized
(Clean Coal, American Revolution, GMOs)
guides may also include interactive tutorials,
professional development resources
and how-tos for faculty and staff

Library 101 is a Blackboard module designed
to introduce students to research at JTCC’s library
RALC promotes resource sharing through such activities as interlibrary lending, document delivery and direct borrowing by patrons.
Faculty and staff do not need RALC passes
(College ID will usually be sufficient)
Students will need a RALC pass
Each RALC pass is good for one visit
Multiple passes be may obtained
RALC passes available in person at both campuses
