Bigfoot Hunting - High School to College: Welcome

Bigfoot Hunting

 

 

Cryptozoology is the search for and study of strange and unkown creatures whose existence has not yet been proven.  These creatures are also known as "cryptids."

 

 

Welcome to HGLL!

The faculty and staff of the Henrietta G. Lewis Library welcome you! The library is a four story building which houses over 90,000 volumes and over 400 periodical subscriptions. We have 26 desktop computers for your use, along with laptops, MacBooks and iPads that circulate within the library. Our homepage will link you to over 100 databases for finding articles, which then gives you access to over 25,000 journals and newspapers, most in full text on the screen. Study rooms are available for group or quiet study.

 This guide has been developed to give you an idea of the sources and services available for you in a college library.   Follow along as we search for Bigfoot, and try to decide whether or not he or she is real!

 

This LibGuide is based on a LibGuide from Columbus State Community College Library.
