Citation Styles (MLA/APA/Chicago)

The AC Librarians have created guides to help you format your paper and citations correctly according to MLA, APA, or Chicago (Turabian) styles.  Libguides are available for each, and there are video tutorials walking you through how to set up the formatting when using either Microsoft Word or Google Docs.  Links to all of these helpful materials are available to students after logging into Blackboard, selecting the "Library" tab, and then the "How do I . . . ?" tab.  Other AC personnel can access these materials through the AC Connect portal, selecting either "Student Services" or "Faculty/Staff Information" to find the "Library" tab and then selecting the "How do I . . . ?" tab.  


Copyright Information

Rutgers University has created a guide to assist with copyright issues. Topics covered are: what copyright includes, ownership, duration and extent of protection, exclusive rights of copyright owners, fair use, and classroom use. 

For additional information, the University of Texas System Crash Course in Copyright is one of the best available copyright tutorials.


Find Research Articles for an Assignment

Students and Faculty can access online library databases by logging in through Blackboard, and selecting the "Library" menu item at the top.

All individuals at AC can access online library databases by logging in through the AC Connect portal, selecting either “Student Services” or “Faculty/Staff Information” from the pull-down menu, and then “Library.”


Health Occupations - Exams

LearningExpress provides a resource to prepare for program exams.  From the menu in the middle of the screen, select "Career Center," then "Prepare for an Entrance Exam" or "Prepare for an Occupation Exam" (for exit or board exams).  When you select an exam, this will take you to a screen to set up a LearningExpress user account.  Your username will be your AC email address. We recommend using your AC password in LearningExpress.
