Resources for Your Car Repair Studies

Deciding What You Need

If you are researching something that isn't repair oriented - for example, new car information, trends in the transportation industry, job searching - try journal and newspaper articles through ProQuest, or the web.

Broad Searches  If you want to see large amounts of information - books, journal articles, DVDs and more -  and you don’t mind glancing at a few things that you might not need, use RTC's OneSearch.

Try OneSearch Now:



Focused Searches  When you know exactly what you need.

  • If you need journal articles, click on the Articles tab above, and learn about ProQuest, eLibrary, and other databases.
  • If you need books, click on the Books tab, and learn how to find books in the RTC Library Catalog, or eBooks in RTC databases.
  • If you need web resources, click on the Web Sites tab. This page lists helpful web sites on many automotive topics. 


Not Finding What You Want?

  • Try another way of describing your topic.  Instead of "car" try "automobile". Instead of "movie" try "motion picture".
