What can Touro Libraries do for YOU?

Watch a short video introduction to the many resources and services offered by the Touro Libraries

Before diving into your first research project, make sure you're familiar with the following:

  • Off-Campus Access - All electronic resources (databases, ebooks, streaming video) are available to Touro students and faculty from any computer. When off-campus, simply login with your TouroOne credentials.
  • QuickSearch - Combined search for all items from the catalog and databases, including ebooks, books, articles, and videos.
  • eBooks - Search for eBooks only.
  • Catalog - Search the physical collection of the libraries, such as print books, journals and media.  
  • Databases - Collections of articles from magazines, newspapers, and academic journals. Some cover many topics (multidisciplinary) while others are subject-specific. Some may also include eBooks or videos. 
    • Note: Many databases include citations and abstracts for articles that they do not offer full-text for; to see if the full article is available elsewhere, click on the Article Linker button, or request for free through interlibrary loan (ILL).

  • ProQuest Research Companion - PQRC is an online course designed to help you understand and successfully complete academic-level research and writing. PQRC includes guidance on choosing a topic, finding information from appropriate materials, selecting evidence, attributing sources, and writing a research-based essay.  
  • Library Homepage - The main point of entry for all library resources.
  • Ask a Librarian! If you need more help.
