Our subject area web link pages have been re-designed in an easier to read format which displays all links on one screen. Each major area has a tab at the top of the screen. Check out the Reference Shelf tab with online dictionaries and thesaurus, as well as links to information about MLA and APA style. Return to this AIC Library main site through the link at the upper right side of each page. The old pages will continue to be available until the end of the school year, but will no longer be updated with new links, and will soon be removed from the left side navigation. Check out the new look through clicking Reference Shelf
or Portal to Research
on the left navigation bar and tell us what you think.Portal to Research

Free access is available to hundreds of scholarly journals and books through Google Scholar and Google Books (different from a normal Google search). Links to each of these are available on each of our web resource pages. You can create a personal account in Google Books to save links to books you are using for research. For info on creating an account and using the advanced search features of these two resources, see our tutorial below.Google Scholar & Books Tutorial
Library staff have added 1015 books to the library collection during first semester. Each book was reviewed, classified, cataloged, stamped, labeled, taped and shelved. Thanks go out to all the donors of these items, as well as to the hard-working library team of staff and volunteers.
Praise God for these valuable gifts.
