Types of materials

There are several major types of information sources available in print and electronic form through the ACC Library

Our book collection contains books that support our programs.  Additionally you will find full text e-books within our LOUIS electronic media online.  To view these books you must enter your LOLA ID and birthdate in the format MMDDYYYY.   A book can provide detailed background and in-depth historical information about any given topic.


This covers encyclopedias, atlases, and other resources that are referred to for specific information. Go to these for definitions, shorter explanations, historical and biographical sketches, background or overviews, and statistical data.


Articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers (periodicals) are integral sources for current reviews, research, and criticism on recently published works. Scholarly journals differ from magazines:  Articles in scholarly journals are peer reviewed and must be approved by a committee of professional peers.  ACC e-resources can help connect you to these articles.

Web sites

The internet provides a vast array of good information from reputable organizations, professional associations, government entities, and scholars. However, there is a lot of unreliable information on the Web, so access sources and content critically.
