This page explains the many ways faculty can find, get, and use library media materials for their classes. Check out physical media from the library PCC Library’s media collection circulates for six weeks to PCC users. If something from the library collection is checked out or otherwise unavailable, please contact us. It is possible that we can get the video for you through Summit or interlibrary loan. Instructors can place DVDs on reserve at the campus of their choice. Items on reserve can remain there for a full term or up to three years. This includes instructor/department-owned DVDs as well as DVDs that are part of the library collection. See Course Reserves for Faculty for additional information. E-books PCC Library subscribes to several e-book collections. Look for e-books in the Library Search. Type in a search term in the “PCC Library & Summit” tab. When the results come back, select those that say “e-books”. Click the “View It” tab and follow the link that is offered. See E-books for additional information. Streaming videos PCC Library subscribes to several streaming video collections that cover multiple subject areas. See Streaming Videos for additional information. Images Images can be found in multiple databases, but ARTstor is an image-only database containing over 1.5 million digital images. ARTstor’s tools support viewing and analyzing images, saving groups of images for personal or shared uses, and creating and delivering presentations. See [link to image type databases] for other databases containing images. Get help from Liaison Librarians PCC Subject Liaison Librarians can help you find appropriate media for your courses.
