Fire Science: Library Resources

guide to library resources on Fire Science for Vol State faculty

This guide helps Fire Science faculty easily find online resources from Thigpen Library to use in eLearn. Do not hesitate to contact a librarian if you need assistance using or finding online library resources.

Not faculty? These resources are useful to anyone interested in the topic of fire science; however, you must be currently affiliated with Vol State to use these resources from off-campus. Ask a Librarian if you need recommendations about a database to use for your research.

Use streaming videos

Thigpen Library has several streaming video collections. Videos from the library's collection meet accessibility standards with closed-captioning and transcripts. You can embed streaming videos into eLearn.

Select videos on fire science topics

These streaming video links may be of interest to fire science students. Access is limited to current Vol State students, faculty, and staff. Search our streaming video databases for more videos.

Help with streaming videos

The Videos guide answers basic questions about linking to and embedding videos in eLearn. The guide offers help with other issues as well. Ask a Librarian for help using or finding videos in our databases.

Journals available in databases

Library databases provide access to full-text articles from a variety of journals and magazines. The databases have journals and magazines dedicated to fire science topics or you can search a database for relevant articles from a variety of periodicals. If interested in a particular journal search the Journal Title List to find if the journal is available in a database. Or use the Fire Science periodicals available link for a list.

Want to include an article in your course? You have two options:

  • Download the article and add it as a file to your course content.
  • Link to the article by using the article's permalink. Users must be affiliated with Vol State to use the article.
