October is Information Literacy Month! To celebrate, your Kirkwood Community College library is doing a trial of 4 databases from October 1st through October 31st. Two of the databases, JSTOR and Project Muse, will add to our online journal collection in the areas of English, Social Science, general Humanities, and general Science. The other two, Alexander Street Press and Films on Demand, contain videos and films, which would be a new service for our library. To read more about these databases and the segments we are trialing; please check out our library guide.
Unfortunately, adding databases to our collection can be quite expensive, so the library wants to make sure that we use our funds wisely. Therefore, the addition of these is completely dependent on you, our customer. So after you check these out, please complete the survey to let us know what you think. Your responses will tell us whether to purchase a database and more specifically which components to purchase.
So Happy Information Literacy Month and Happy Searching!
