Do-It-Yourself Library: Print or Non-Internet Sources

I Am Only Supposed To Use Print Or Non-Internet Sources

The NWACC library have access to more online journals or magazine articles than print versions. However, some assignments may ask that you NOT use "online" or "Internet" sources. Here are suggestions for handling this:

  • First: Check the assignment requirements. Does the professor mean that you are not allowed to use any sources from the open web, but you ARE allowed to use online articles from scholarly journals available through the library's online databases? If you're unsure, talk with your instructor.
  • Next: If you've confirmed that you cannot use online library resources, search for online versions of relevant journals/articles through the NWACC library's Search Everything and then fill in the interlibrary loan form to get that particular print article or book.  
  • Finally: If you're having trouble locating a print item just  Ask a Librarian for help.
