Welcome Back!

Welcome back and we hope you have a great start to the academic year.  Some items to keep in mind:

  • Take a look at our student orientation guide.
  • You can access the library’s databases from home using your EasyLogin. (This is the same username and password used for logining into your CCSNH email, Blackboard, and SIS).
  • We do share an online catalog with the other CCSNH schools.  If you want to only see Claremont items, please be sure to click on River Valley C.C.button on the main page before you search.
  • We are happy to obtain materials we do not own from other libraries.  Please read our blog post for more information on this service.
  • Feel free to ask the librarians for help.  There are multiple ways to contact us.  Stop by the desk, give us a call, email, or IM us using our Zoho Chat Widget, found on the left hand column of the library’s webpage.  Whether it is a quick question or you’d like more help with a research project we want you to succeed.

We look forward to seeing you around this semester. Stop on by.

BPL’s Digital Resources

The Boston Public Library (BPL) is not just a public library but is also a research institution.  The digital resource department regularly adds items from various collections held at BPL to its flickr photo stream.  You can view a wide variety of items such as manuscripts from Walt Whitman, old postcards from around New England, 18th century political cartoons, anti-slavery broadsides, and a slew of baseball photographs.  Poke around either for fun or if you need images and resources for an assignment.  (My personal favorite is a sketch for Make Way for Ducklings).

If you are interested in maps, check out the collection at the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center online.

If you use any images for an assignment, be sure to cite them properly.  The library’s citing sources page can help.
