Films On Demand has a new Help Center

Have you ever used Films On Demand?  It is one of the library’s media databases that stores digital educational videos through a streaming video platform.  Users have access to an array of  videos in real time.  Films On Demand is an excellent resource for both faculty and students to access high quality videos from a variety of disciplines.  And now it is easier to use thanks to their newly updated Help Center.  Visit the Help Center for Quick Start Guides and How-To Tips in order to get the most out this database. 

Video sources are easy to cite, and many videos have interactive transcripts and text translation options, allowing those who consider English as a second language to translate text into 53 different languages.

Access Films On Demand from the Articles web page on Palomar College Library’s website.  If accessing from off-campus, a Palomar College login is required.  If you have any questions about this or other resources, please contact Tamara Weintraub, Databases and Serials Librarian.

New Content in Intelecom

Intelecom, a digital repository of educational clips, just got better by adding an additional 350 clips from National Geographic to its collection.  These educational clips are great for instructors and students.  Faculty can use them in the classroom or embed them in Blackboard.  Students can benefit by using them as additional tutorial support.

New clips are available in the following disciplines:  Anthropology, Astronomy, Atmospheric Sciences, Botany, Chemistry, Earth Science, Geography, Oceanography, and Zoology. 

Students and faculty can access Intelecom from the Palomar College Library website.  Click on  Articles.  For remote access, a Palomar College login is required.  If you have additional questions, please contact Tamara Weintraub, Databases and Serials Librarian.

EBSCO Database Research on Mobile Devices

EBSCO databases now autodetect when a user is on a mobile device.  There is no need to switch interfaces manually any longer.  This change makes searching from your phone one step easier.  If you have never tried library research from your phone, perhaps now is the time to attempt it.  From a WIFI connected mobile device, go to the Palomar College Library website, and click the Articles tab.  Select any database with EBSCO in parentheses to enjoy the autodetect mobile device feature.  Palomar College e-services id and password are required for remote access. 
If you have any questions, please contact Tamara Weintraub, Serials and Databases Librarian.
