Library Resources

Printed Materials | Electronic Resources | Audio-Visual/Multimedia Collection

In an effort to provide remote and timely access to electronic information to support teaching and learning, the IVE LRCs have devoted a large part of resources to develop a growing collection of electronic books and electronic databases.

These resources are available from any PC workstations with Internet access within the VTC premises or get access to the LRC subscribed web-based e-resources through EZProxy at home. Users also can access to these resources with VPN (Virtual Private Network) installation and a valid VTC email account. More information on how to install VPN may be found in the IVE Libraries Homepage.

Electronic Books

The electronic books (eBooks) collection consists of over 260,000 titles, which cover topics such as Construction, Business, Child Care, Computer Science, Education, Engineering, Science, Fine Arts, Language, Mathematics and Vocational Guidance. Other than the purchased eBooks by the VTC, the netLibrary also provides thousands of free eBooks to all subscribed users. More information on how to access the VTC eBooks may be found in the IVE Libraries Homepage.

Electronic Databases

The VTC Library subscribes to around 75 electronic databases on general, scientific, technical topics and also on product to company data. Some of these electronic databases offer full-text journal articles from over 64,000 e-journals which may be accessed online.

The user guides for the electronic databases are available in LRCs and are obtainable from the IVE Libraries Homepage.
