This guide describes library resources and services that are available to faculty at Foothill College. Please use the tabs above to navigate to information regarding our resources and services. We look forward to working with you!
- The Library has moved! Remodeling of the 3500 (Library) and 3600 (Media Center) buildings began in 2014. During the renovation, the library collection, student computer work stations, circulation staff and librarians will relocate to the 3600 building in the area where the Media Center was located. The Media Center and Library Technical Services Dept. will relocate to the Temporary Village. The renovation is estimated to take a year to year and a half to complete. For more information on the remodel, see http://libguides.foothill.edu/remodel
- Turnitin is back! A great tool for instructors and students to check for potential plagiarism and improper citation. Pam Wilkes is the campus administrator. Contact Pam at email@example.com to set up an account. Judy Baker, Dean of Foothill Global Access, will provide periodic training workshops. In addition, the Turnitin Help Center provides customer support and training.
- New online resources include:
- The Library has enhanced its subscription to the Chronicle of Higher Education with “domain access” which means you can now obtain a free account to access the Chronicle content off-campus via smart-phones and tablets.
