Some articles you find will not be accessible for free; however, it is worth searching because there are many free academic articles and ebooks available.

    • The MOBIUS catalog allows you to search over 27 million items! When you find an item you could use, just request that the item be sent to the Camden County Library Branch.  You must have a Camden County library card to request an item.

EasyBib EDU

CHS provides all students a Pro Account with EasyBib. With a Pro Account, you can create citations in any format (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.)  The pro account also presents fewer ads and provides extra tools such as an online notebook. EasyBib EDU is only available with coupon code access. Even though EasyBib creates accurate citations, the program can only be as good as the information you provide.  So make sure you are analyzing sources carefully and adding accurate information!
