Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Us - Sept. 15 -
Heritage Month has been officially celebrated in the United States since
1989. Organizers chose to begin the month long celebration on
September 15 because that is the official Independence Day for 5
Latin American nations: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.
Mexico, our closest 'Hispanic' neighbor celebrates its independence
on September 16.
Stop by the 2nd floor of the Library to learn about Hispanic
Americans who work at Palomar! To have your profile added to the
display contact Public Services Librarian
Welcome Back! and Summer Library Displays
We were so happy to welcome students for the Fall 2015 semester we
mounted 2 'huge' "Welcome Back" cutouts!
If you were on campus this summer you were fortunate to view our
Route 66 and
Balboo Park displays. Both were 'retreads', displays
previously mounted at our library. It seemed fitting during the
vacation season to again suggest fun summer options for our Palomar
New College Webpage
Palomar College launched its
new webpage on Wednesday July 1st. As part of the College
Website Revamp departments are migrating to a standard template.
This will allow our students and various users easier access to
key college wide resources. Throughout the Fall the Library will be migrating its content to the new template.
A preview of the
library's webpage will be be available in late October. We will ask
users for feedback and suggestions before going live, so stay tuned!

Library Retirements 2015
This academic Year 2014/2015
the Library said goodbye to four staff members. These Faculty and Library Media
Technicians have a total of over 75 years of service to Palomar
College. While we will miss their individual and collective
professional contributions to our students, we are thrilled to celebrate the
beginning of their next chapters in life.
Public Services Media Techs
Kelly and Randy will
additional time near the water once they no longer have to open the
Library doors. Technical Services Media Tech
Meredith is likely
to continue honing her artistic skills (e,g, making miniature
books, desiging library bindings, etc.). Technical Services
Librarian Byung Kang will do some traveling and continue
re-organizing to make more time for visits with grandchildren.
We have already had goodby celebrations for Randy and Kelly and
hosted an event for Professor Kang May 18th. Meredith's
celebration was held June 30th.
Dashboard - Lessons on Avoiding Plagiarism, Citing Sources and More! !
Dashboard consists of interactive, online lessons designed to help students develop their information literacy skills. The lessons address plagiarism, incorporating outside sources into one’s own work, and the concepts and mechanics of citing sources using MLA and APA documentation styles.
Some instructors will be using the tool within their
classes but students are free to independently work with the 3
modules currently available to enhance their skills.
The most exciting thing about
the catalog is that it allows you to
search our physical and virtual collections
at the same time. From
the Everything tab on the searchbox at the top of the
type keywords, click Go and your list of results will include everything from books or DVDs we own to articles from library subscribed databases. Stop by the Reference Desk if you need help or want to learn more about using WCL.
Some catalog options especially helpful for researchers are:
the ability to link to the catalog record for a resource (Permalink),
a save search button and export of bibliographic information to EasyBib for citation use. You can
even use the My library account tool to view a
list of library items you've checked out, titles you've
requested and any payments made/owed. Click

to My library account.
