This Fall 2022 Semester, the library is offering a new online OneSearch Library Catalog Tutorial. The tutorial is available in our library catalog, in many of our library research guides, and on our library website.
Upon completion of the OneSearch Library Catalog Tutorial, library patrons should be able to:
1. Find the OneSearch online library catalog.
2. Search for and locate books and e-books, videos, articles, digital media, and more in the library's collection.
3. Request items from other LACCD libraries.
At the end of the tutorial, there is a short online quiz, which provides users feedback.
Makerspaces are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn while incorporating critical thinking skills through trial and error. In libraries, makerspaces can have 3D printers, software, electronics, craft, hardware supplies and other tools to create projects.
The video below, We Are Makers, tells the story of the Makerspace movement.
The WLAC Library Makerspace projects have used various paper crafting skills to represent well-known themes and holidays. Paper Circuits use an LED bulb and coin battery to light up paper designs.
Origami is a paper folding technique used to create everyday objects, plants and animals.
