How-To Guides

Overview of our most important services

  • Ask-A-Librarian: Got a quick question? Contact us via call, chat (IM), e-mail or tweet (@tourolibraries) to speak to a reference librarian 
  • Resources: We’ve got more resources than you could ever count! Over 120 different databases in many disciplines, 56,000 ejournals, over 350,000 ebooks, and streaming video
  • Renew online: Book due tomorrow but snow predicted? Skip the trip to the library. Click My Account, login with your name and the barcode on the back of your Touro College ID. 
  • LibGuides: These online library guides are created by professional librarians on a variety of subjects. Libguides can serve as a portal to a selection of authoritative and credible resources for you and your students.  
  • Reserves: Put books and films on course reserve for your students. For online article and e-book chapters try E-Reserves.
  • Recommendations: Need more? Get in touch with a Librarian or use the Recommend a purchase form online to ask for new journals, books, or electronic databases to be added to our collections. 
  • ILL: Still need more? Use our ILL (Interlibrary Loan) which is fast and free. Request any material you need that’s not on the shelf and we will send it to the Touro library of your choice. 
  • Copyright: For questions on Copyright, Fair Use and Open Access, ask Sara Tabaei. 
  • iPads: iPads are available for circulation at Midtown, Midwood and Bay Shore libraries. Ask a reference librarian for more information on this service.  
  • RefWorks: The new RefWorks is now available through Touro libraries. This online-only resource includes all citations styles and can import articles directly from databases. Save PDFs, add notes, and create a bibliography. Sign-up with a email address. For workshops and classes, contact Georgia Westbrook
  • Library Classes: Help your students learn to use the library by scheduling a hands-on library session given by library staff. The best time for these sessions to be beneficial to your students is when they are connected to an assignment. Contact your site library
  • Webinars: Come and learn for yourself about the library services and resources available to you by attending library webinars.
  • OER: Open educational resources are digital textbooks compiled with materials in the public domain. The open license nature of OER means professors can edit and customize the materials to their needs. Using OER textbooks will help students save hundreds of dollars and also make them have access to their free online textbook. For more information, click here.
