Welcome to the Library!

Hello and welcome to the library guide for this online ENG 100 class.  My name is John Thomas and I here to help you with research for this class (or others).  Please feel free to contact me if you need any help, my contact information is on the right.

I have included a few links to some of our most frequently used resources on the other pages of this guide.  Please let me know if you have any questions or difficulties, I look forward to working with you!

What does the Library offer?

In general, college research requires the use of authoritative sources.  Here are a few characteristics of  authoritative sources:

  • Written by authors with subject expertise, as demonstrated by educational background, awards, work experience, positions held, publications, etc.
  • Articles published in respected journals, magazines or newspapers (respect is earned by minimizing editorial errors and by maintaining high standards of fact-checking, etc.)
  • Books and ebooks published by publishers who have high standards in relation to author and editor expertise and background.
  • Information provided by respected organizations which are usually run by experts of the disciplines related to the organizations.

The Library offers literally millions of sources for your research projects. In addition to our traditional books, you can remotely access our many databases and other licensed resources for newspapers, magazines, journals; research reports, hundreds of thousands of ebooks and more.


Your Librarians / Ask for Help

Need help with something? Ask Us for Help!

If you are on-campus you are encouraged to stop by the Library and ask for help, we welcome the opportunity to work with you.

If you are off-campus and we are open your best option is to call the Reference Desk at 315-786-2482 and ask for one of us. You can also contact us via email or if you need immediate assistance and we are not open, you can chat with a librarian online (likely not a JCC librarian, but helpful nonetheless) as outlined on our "Ask for Help" web page.

We look forward to working with you!
