St. Petersburg College Libraries have a new website! It is now possible, thanks to the Florida Virtual Campus , to directly link SPC’s Library website to our main research portal (called Primo). Primo is a one-stop discovery system that provides access to a large repository of books, e-books, full-text articles, videos, and more. To learn how Primo works, watch this animated video.
Note: If your course syllabi and assignments guide students to Databases A-Z, Databases by Subject, and Journals A-Z then these links still exist (see highlights above). The Google-like search box, also highlighted above, searches all of our library resources (e.g., books, e-books, full-text articles, videos, and more) and provides one interface to display all the results.
If a user requires more sophisticated research methodologies, then they can do an Advanced Search (see highlight above) and/or they can search within a specific database or journal title. Please know that librarians are available online or within any SPC Campus Library or Learning Commons to help users navigate and to make best use of all of the library’s resources and services. Librarians also can visit classrooms, online or face-to-face, to provide practical academic research tips and skills to help better engage students in the learning process. The Library Instruction Request form is available at http://www.spcollege.edu/survey/4680.
SPC faculty, students, and staff are automatically logged in to the library’s resources and services (including MyAccount) after they have logged in to ANGEL. Simply select the Library Resources & Services link under the ‘Institutional Resources’ section and obtain access to everything the library has to offer! If a user is not logged in to ANGEL, then the user will be prompted to login using a Borrower ID (Student/Employee number) and a PIN (last 4-digits of Social Security Number).
There is now an option to “Keep me logged in” so users will not be required to login every time they want to do library research.
To start using the new library website please visit http://www.spcollege.edu/libraries/ and select the “Search Library” button.
If you have questions, comments, need help replacing persistent links to library resources or services, or have access issues please contact Chad Mairn at firstname.lastname@example.org or (727) 394-6917.
