How to Use the Library for Research

All this information and more can be found on the FHS Library website. Go to https://sites.google.com/fuhsd.net/fhslibrarymediacenter 

Books

  • Use the catalog. Type in a subject and write down multiple titles that look interesting. Remember, you can check out three books at a time; use this to your advantage.
  • Learn how to find a book using call numbers.
  • Be specific. Don’t read an entire book without first searching the catalog. You might find a book that is more specific to your topic. Also, don’t read an entire book without first skimming the table of contents to ensure that you’ll find relevant information.

Digital Library - eBooks/Audiobooks

  • We have a growing collection of digital books and audiobooks available for free! Just go to fallbrookuhsd.lib.overdrive.com and sign in with your school email.

a.  Browse the collections or search for a specific book/topic using the search bar. 

b.  Move your mouse over a title and select “Borrow.”

c.  Select “Checkout now” or go to “Account.”

d.  Select "Read in your browser" if you are using a computer or Chromebook. Select “Download” if you want to read the book offline. Choose “Read now with Kindle” if you have the kindle app on your smartphone. (Overdrive app coming soon!)

ProQuest Database

  • The link to access our online database can be found under “Resources” on the FHS Library website (https://sites.google.com/fuhsd.net/fhslibrarymediacenter). 
  • You can search for a specific topic or browse issues ranging from business & economics to world cultures & politics.
  • The system organizes articles under different viewpoints, which makes it easy to find material for a research/persuasive essay.

World Book Online

  • Look up various topics with the World Book Online Reference Center (Worldbookonline.com). Explore issues and topics like current events, animals, biographies, history, technology, etc. This database is also a useful resource for research papers and other projects.
