Library Website Virtual Tour

Library Home Page - the virtual front door

This tour will highlight the main areas of the Rio Hondo College Library Web site. Rio Hondo librarians have spent many hours designing and providing content for this Web site.

What that means to you, the student, is that every heading and link has been given thought as to its purpose and function. We wanted the Web site to become a launching point for your research needs, both on and off-campus. Go on! Bookmark us now -- or better yet -- make the Rio Library your homepage!

This page will start with a brief explanation of the major sections of the Web site. (all screen shots of the Library Web site in the tour have a red border. Click on the top banner on each page to go back to the "live" Library Web site!)
