Subject guides

Databases and a selection of library materials and Web resources for research by topic.

For help, call the Reference department at 865-215-8700 at Lawson McGhee Library during regular business hours.

How subject guides are arranged

Navigate by the list of topics to the left or below. In subjects with subtopics, the top level subject displays only a few selected resources; use the subtopic links to find more for deeper research.

The format tabs arrange resources into shorter lists; some may be in a "featured" list and the rest are organized more or less by the kind of resource. There might be another format indication in the description of a resource. For example, under the Magazines tab, links may take you to the catalog record for a magazine we have in print in the library, a magazine within a database, a magazine's website, or a downloadable magazine.

Highlights

RBdigital

On June 27, the OneClickdigital app and the Zinio for Libraries app will both be replaced with a single app, RBdigital. If you enable automatic updates to these apps, you do not need to take any action; otherwise, you may choose to manually install the updates at a convenient time. The same RBdigital app will provide you with service for both magazines and downloadable audiobooks.

Zinio now gives you easy, quick searching of the latest popular magazines. After signing in to a Zinio account, you can use Article Search to search by keyword on article text in the most popular magazines back to July 2012, and easily check out a magazine from your search results.
