Project Resources: How To Utilize The FLCC Library

There are a wide variety of student support services available at Finger Lakes Community College. You paid for them, therefore you should use them as much as possible!

The Library:

The FLCC Academic Library is officially named the Charles J. Meder Library. Full-time academic librarians, library clerks, library aides, and a variety of support staff members are available to help you find the information you need!

Do not be afraid or embarrassed to ask library staff for assistance. They have masters degrees (and sometimes more) in academic research. This is their job. They enjoy helping students conduct research!

Ask 24/7 Reference Service:

(Ask 24/7 is a virtual chat service that connects people with reference librarians. You will not necessarily be chatting with a librarian in your community or even at your library, but you will be chatting with a reference librarian. The librarian who answers your chat will be able to help you with questions about your library and will help you find answers to other questions you may have by using a range of Internet sources and specialized databases.)
