I’m sure you know that the library has books and journals online. But did you know that we have online films, documentaries, images, statistics and data, historical and current newspapers, comics and graphic novels, 3D images, tests and measurements? And within our usual collections of books and journals, there are resources beyond the usual, like practice guidelines, children's books, books suitable for textbooks, and historical primary documents. Come join me for a tour of the less expected resources in the Library’s online collections.
