What's New in the Library
eBooks - this summer, the DVC librarians added two new eBook services. The first is called ebrary, which includes over 25,000 new eBooks and provides unlimited access to each eBook. The second is called Safari Books Online. This eBook service is specifically for tech books (software manuals, programming/coding guides, etc.). There is a use restriction of two simultaneous users per book. You can find eBooks from both providers in ALICE, the DVC Library catalog.
Oxford Reference Online is another new database that provides students with an online reference collection. This isn't as comprehensive as the print collection, but it will make reference materials accessible to students off campus.
