Your Folsom Lake College librarians are here to help you with your research needs!

You can also speak to a reference librarian by calling the Reference Desk at (916) 608-6612.

Research Guides 
Use the Research Guides as a tool to help you get started on your research. Guides cover a range of subject areas as well as individual courses.

OneSearch
Use OneSearch to locate and access library materials such as print books, eBooks, periodicals, media and reserve items.
