Information Resources for AOE Students: Welcome

The purpose of this guide is to introduce CPS students to navigation of Lightner Library resources and to provide research tutorials.

Connecting to Lightner Library

Welcome to our library guide for AOE students.

You'll find information on how to find library resources under each tab.

Once you feel comfortable with the information, you can go to our library homepage to start looking for the resources you need.

View the video below for a 5-minute orientation to Lightner Library, and the resources and services we provide.

(Please note that CPS has recently changed to AOE, so some resources may still be labeled with "CPS.")

Contact the IT HelpDesk

To access our library databases from off-campus, you must log in with your Keuka College username and password. If you forget your password, you can use the Passwords at Keuka College Guide to reset it.
