FRCC Library Video Tutorials

These videos and step-by-step guides can help you make the most of FRCC-Larimer Campus collections and services.

Welcome! The videos in this guide will help you get the most out of the library services and tools available to you at Harmony Library at FRCC-Larimer Campus. 

This first page goes over how to access databases remotely, whether you're on, MyCourses/D2L, or on Browse the other menu tabs on the left to find database tips, searching the public library's collection and searching multiple Colorado library collections, and understanding primary sources. The search box could also help you find tips throughout our Research Guides.

**Please note! Many of the tutorials will be remade soon, because of the new login process using FRCC S numbers and new resources available through FRCC's partnership with Colorado Community College Shared Library. However, the search tips and database features will largely remain the same, so we kept older videos up for now.** 

Contact us if you have any questions about using the databases or run into issues logging in.
