Online Articles, Books and Videos

You and your students are encouraged to use the Library’s resources to support your work in CollegeNow classes

TC3 credentials (either a Tompkins Cortland ID number or a myTC3 name and password) are required to log in to online resources. If you don't know your logon credentials contact Rhonda Kowalski at 607.844.8222, ext. 4396.

If you have any questions or experience any access problems or need assistance in locating full text articles, e-books or streaming video, distributing materials to your students or including resources in Blackboard, contact the Library.

Physical Items

Books and DVDs can be requested using the Library's Get It! service. A Tompkins Cortland ID number is required to submit a request. Either look up your ID number by going to myInfo, or contact Rhonda Kowalski at 607.844.8222, ext. 4396.

Items will be delivered to the requestor’s home address and can be returned to your high school librarian (if your school is a member of TST or OCM BOCES) or by mail using a prepaid shipping label that the Library provides.

Research Help

Students and instructors are encouraged to ask Tompkins Cortland librarians for research assistance.

Instruction

Librarians teach students how to locate, evaluate and integrate information resources. You are welcome to bring your class to the College for instruction in our computer classroom or we can come to you. Online guides to supplement in-person instruction are also available and can be created for specific assignments upon request. Let us know what you need.

Academic Integrity and Plagiarism

Librarians are available for consultations on plagiarism, intellectual property and other academic integrity issues. CollegeNow instructors may also use SafeAssign, an online plagiarism prevention and detection tool that is integrated with the College's Blackboard online course system. For more information see Academic Integrity and Plagiarism.

Tutoring

Tutoring services are available both in person and online.
