We have more of what you are looking for:
1. FREE ACCESS: Get Around the "Paywall" by Using the Library. Don't buy articles off the internet. We’ve already paid for FVTC access to many of the articles. We can also get articles from other libraries for free, through the interlibrary loan process.
2. CURATED: Get Reliable Information at the Library. Library resources have been through editors and fact-checkers who focus on bringing you reliable information. Library databases provide you with tools for finding, filtering, and citing information.
3. FRIENDLY: Come to the Library for Personal Assistance. Friendly, highly-trained librarians are standing by, waiting to help you find the information you’re looking for. We can help you when yo get stuck.
Expertise: If we don't know how to find or do something, we can find someone who knows. Our Librarians have a variety of skills and areas of expertise.
Resources: You can use our databases to pre-select peer-reviewed scholarly resources. This raises the level of authority and reliability of your results. Otherwise, you can use our Evaluation and Internet Searching guides to improve your understanding of what kind of information is worth your time.
Compliance: We use standards, frameworks and guides to improve the accessibility and usability of our physical and virtual resources. Example standards and guides include: 508, ADA, ALA , UDL, WAI and WCAG 2.1.
Neutrality: We encourage people to use multiple sources of information and to look for objective content to avoid the problems of our implicit biases, inherent biases and weaknesses for logical fallacies.
Flexibility: Fast-paced changes in the information ecosystem demand that library staff are flexible about meeting the information needs of our users. Whether it is migrating from one format to another or changing databases, collection goals, or methods of teaching, we are willing to change, innovate and collaborate for mutual success.
