FACULTY RESOURCES

The library staff is available to help you with any of your instruction and research needs. Never hesitate to contact the library for assistance with finding resources, paper or online. Many resources are available to assist you and your students in the pursuit of information:

Discover Resources

Using our Discovery @ Clarence Mitchell Library search tool, you can simultaneously search across a number of library resources.  See what is available at Highland and 70 other PrairieCat libraries. Request books, find articles, e-books and other library materials online. 

Chronicle of Higher Education

Campus-wide access to the full-text of this week’s Chronicle of Higher Education. 

Films on Demand

The Films on Demand database can be accessed from within the results screen in the Discovery interface.  (Login with your HCC network username and password is required to use it from home). Choose the video tab to search only Films on Demand.  There is lots of great content for your courses.  Add Films on Demand to your Moodle course so students can access the video content anytime.

Statista

Statista is a statistics portal that provides data in a variety of different fields.  The content focuses on current (not historical) statistics.  Encourage your students to make use of this resource to improve their understanding and use of statistical data.  Ready-made tables and charts are available for download to insert into papers, projects, presentations and your Moodle courses. Learn about Statista or share a tutorial with your students with this brief instructional video.

Research consultations/ Classroom instruction

We encourage you to send your students to our staff librarians (Laura or Michael) for assistance with their research papers and projects.

We are available to come to your classrooms to discuss discipline specific resources, research instruction and other aspects of Information Literacy. We are available for library tours and demonstrations of library resources.
