These resources provide good introductions to topics, and include general information from resources such as videos, encyclopedia entries, case studies, and opinion pieces.
Explore the full text of hundreds of thousands of books electronically, with 24/7 access wherever you have an internet connection.
The Library provides a wide variety of streaming videos. These videos include tutorials, documentaries and educational films, and can provide an interesting way to learn about a new topic. Search video collections for the subject you are interested in, such as Automotive Technology, Construction, Residential Energy Efficiency, and so on.
Image collections are a great resource for pictures that are available for educational use (make sure you cite your sources!). Use images to enhance your presentations and essays, or just to help clarify tough topics.
