The Library website is the place to go for reliable information at Palomar College, and we’re constantly adding digital content in all subjects. Check out these new databases:

Our oldest digital repository of academic videos is even better with newly added anatomy, physiology, and algebra clips. Streamed on demand, videos in many other subjects and disciplines are also available. Videos can be embedded in Blackboard, or linked on course websites.

Articles from hundreds of journals and books covering the latest information in the dental and oral sciences are found in this database using the familiar EBSCO search program.

This advertising-free database contains evidence-based data on individual natural ingredients used for medicinal purposes (e.g., glucosamine, echinacea, etc.), and the commercially-available brand-named products that contain them.

This contains digitized primary source documents (first-hand personal accounts, pamphlets, monographs, congresses, speeches, maps) produced from 1763 to 1783. Material presenting the European point of view is also included.

Thousands of articles, videos, media-rich content, terms, images, biographies, and the latest news covering current and historical science and technology information is available in this handy reference source.
