Research Resources

Research Resources at the Library

Research is a necessary evil—or joy—for every writer at some point. In the digital age, the most popular place to begin is the internet, while one of the more traditional investigative methods often gets left out: going to the library. Yet the modern library has tons of options to offer a researcher, even online.

This workshop will showcase the resources—both modern and traditional—the library has to offer us now. We’ll join a research librarian for a “tour” of the tools available, many of which can be found at every library in the area. If time allows, the librarian will assist with specific requests as well, so bring your questions.

Getting to the library from PCC Sylvania’s Campus:

By bus: The 44 to Portland City Center and St Johns leaves PCC Sylvania’s main bus stop (4431) at 11:12 am, and reaches SW 6th and Salmon at 11:34. From 6th and Salmon, walk west to 10th Ave, then turn right. The Central library will be on the left side of the street one block down.

Carpool: If you can offer someone a ride with you, please contact Anne Tenino. Details on available rides forthcoming.
