Cool Tools, Open Educational Resources, Open Access Journals and Copyright information

News and Updates

The purpose of this guide is to communicate you about how we may help with your instructional, research, and technology needs and share information that can be lost or hidden. 


The Association of College and Research Libraries have UPDATED their information literacy standards this year to be a framework. As such, LSC-Kingwood Library is redesigning the library instructional tools and services to better fit the new framework.

Please visit the Instructional Support page for more details.

  • Collaboration Station: share your laptop screen with your study group.
  • Textbooks (available for 2 hour check out at the circulation desk)
  • Computers

New Databases for Fall 2016 (We'll add them as links are available, so keep checking!)

The Chronicle of Higher Education


The College Quarterly


Mediums for housing and sharing information is growing and changing. One way in which this is influencing academic institutions is the growth of Open Access (OA) resources that range from written material, music, images and art, films, and other mediums that traditionally fall under copyright. Under open access these pieces of creativity are made available on the web to end users for free. 

This is a great tool for academic institutions because it offers us a greater scope of resources to use. OA journals are becoming popular for liberation from fee structures that are peer-reviewed, scholarly content.

While we could go on about them, below are some useful tools and cautionary tales of which you need to be aware.
