Library News

  • Encyclopedia of Social Work
    Encyclopedia of Social Work offers over 400 overview articles on key topics ranging from international issues to ethical standards.  New articles and revisions to existing articles are added regularly.

  • PBS Video Collection
    PBS Video Collection covers many educational disciplines, including history, science and technology, diversity studies, business, and current events.  Provides access to videos from Frontline, NOVA, American Experience, Odyssey, and films by Ken Burns and Michael Wood.
  • The LCSC campus network will be unavailable, Aug. 15, 7:00p - 9:00p, due to scheduled maintenance.
  • New Databases:
    Social Sciences section - History Reference Center is designed for secondary schools, public libraries, junior/community colleges and undergraduate research. This database features full-text for more than 1,990 reference books, encyclopedias, and non-fiction books from leading history publishers.
    Humanities section - Literary Reference Center is a comprehensive full-text database that provides a broad spectrum of information on thousands of authors and their works across literary disciplines and timeframes.
    The University of Idaho Libraries left the WIN consortium at the end of 2013 and recently completed the removal of its holdings from the NIAL database.   As a result, University of Idaho library materials will no longer be visible in the NIAL database.

    The LCSC campus community is strongly encouraged to use the LCSC Interlibrary Loan service to request materials not owned by the LCSC Library.  The LCSC Library staff is fully prepared to fulfill interlibrary loan requests.  The WorldCat database serves a tool to identify materials not found in the NIAL catalog.

    If you are visiting the University of Idaho Library and want to check out materials, a UI Library guest card is required.  LCSC WarriorOne cards will no longer be accepted at the University of Idaho Library to check out materials.
