ANNOUNCEMENTS

Authentication to access subscription databases and log in to Find It! has changed. Students, use your YVC ID and password, not your last name. YVC Employees, use your computer network login and password.

The library has adopted a new search interface. Use Find It! to search our library catalog and many of our databases in a single search. Also use it to search for course reserves; for journals by title; and for articles, books, or journals by citation. Check your library account, too. Please be patient as we work out the bugs.

We now provide access to the entire Films on Demand collection of streaming videos.

Audiobooks and eBooks from OneClickdigital are now available on a new platform called RBdigital and are much easier to use. Download the RBdigital app to your mobile device and give it a try.

Microsoft Imagine Academy access has been re-authorized by the state legislature for another two years!
