Library hours, tutoring and end of semester events

KCC Library Contributed Column

Kirkwood Libraries and Tutoring Services always support students, but as the end of the semester approaches, you may need a little extra support. Check out some of the ways we can help.  

There are many ways to get help from the Library. Start at our homepage  https://guides.kirkwood.edu to find:

Research Help: Find an overview of the research process; how to search for different types of information; how to evaluate information, and more.   

MLA & APA Style Citation Guides: Find examples to help you create your list of works cited and in-text citations. 

Research Databases: Use the Journal Articles link for databases including articles, ebooks, videos, and music. A useful database for many research projects is Academic Search Elite because it covers nearly every area of academic study.

Librarians are available to help you with your research or citations during most library hours. Stop by the desk or chat with us online through our website to get expert help with your work.  

Tutoring Services is also here to help as you approach the end of the semester. Visit the Tutoring Services website at http://www.kirkwood.edu/tutoring for more information on specific Walk-In tutoring times and locations. 

Exam Cram is once again brought to you by the Library and Tutoring Services. This is a one-day event meant to provide some extra academic support and a little stress relief.
