  4. Websites

Use the Library catalog to search the COD Library's collection of books, videos, e-books, and streaming media. Use your COD Library card to check these items out or access them online.

The best way to start searching the Library catalog is to do a keyword search for words that describe your topic. Try to choose specific keywords. You may need to experiment with keywords to find ones that work for your topic. Once you find some items, you can use subject headings to find other items that cover the same topic.

Call Number Ranges

Use these call number ranges to browse the General Collection and the Reference Collection.

TS227- TS228 General Welding
TK4660 Electric Welding (Arc Welding)
TK7868 / TK7870 Solder & Soldering

These online books and videos can be accessed from the COD network or anywhere on the internet if you have a Library card.

Knovel Library
This database is a cross-searchable collection of electronic books covering many subjects in technology, engineering, applied technology, science, chemistry and physics and much more.

To browse all of these titles, choose "Browse" and look for "Welding Engineering & Materials Joining" on the Subject page.

Standards and Codes

The American Welding Society Standards
This website contains the full-text of the AWS standards. Students have read-only access to this content. Please see your instructor or a librarian if you'd like to print/download the standards. Refer to this guide for help accessing the AWS site.

Using I-Share

The library is a part of a consortium of academic libraries known as I-Share. As COD students, you can request items from other libraries online by creating an I-Share account. For more information, visit our I-Share Information Web Page.

Welding Videos in the Library

Videos in the Library are available to both students and faculty. Students can check out most of the Library videos but sometimes they have to be used in the Library. If you would like to take a reserved video home, please contact the Welding Librarian to get permission for a brief loan.

Faculty, if you'd like to use a video in your class, please call the Circulation Department at 630-942-2106 to have the item delivered to the TEC building or held for pickup at the Library. You can book your videos well in advance of your classes and are strongly encouraged to do so.


How to Search for Videos in the Catalog

When you are in the Library catalog, do a search. (Ex. Welding) You can choose to limit the search to a specific video format: VHS, DVD, or eVideo (streaming).

Streaming Videos

Have your library card handy to watch online videos from off-campus.

Databases are organized collections of information that you can search on a variety of fields, like title and author's name. iTunes is a database and so is Amazon. Even your contacts list in your phone is a type of mini database. The Library has databases of articles from newspapers, magazines and journals.
