Tech Toolbox

Tech Toolbox is one of the many Library Research Guides available through the library website to help you with your classes. While the Subject Guides provide resources and information about every academic subject and workforce area offered at ACC, our Library Guides help with certain research-related skills and topics.

The Tech Toolbox Library Guide focuses on technology skills and information. Confused about Google Docs? Need to brush up on your PowerPoint skills? Unsure where to go to to set up your ACC online account? Wondering what resources the library has about technology? Visit the Tech Toolbox to answer these questions, plus many more!

Like all other Library Research Guides, Tech Toolbox is divided into tabs, each with its own sub-topic, appearing across the top of the guide. You can click on these tabs in any order, or skip some entirely, depending on the information you seek.

The Home tab provides information about how to use a computer, what the Internet actually is, a glossary of technological terms, and what software and hardware is available to you in the ACC Library.

The Google Docs tab explains how to use this tool (and provides tips and tricks), which you have access to through your ACCmail account.

The Word and PowerPoint tabs include three different tutorials to get you started, a list of ACC Library materials about the software, and step-by-step instructions on several FAQ topics.

The Email tab discusses ACC student email accounts, general email safety and security tips, and provides links to tutorials on using email services.

The Printing, Wireless, and Library E-Resources tabs provide information about these services at ACC libraries, as well as general information and tips.

The Social tab defines and gives examples of the most popular types of social media, as well as providing links to video tutorials, informational websites, and books at the ACC libraries.

No matter your comfort level with technology, there's always something new to learn, and the Tech Toolbox is the best place to start! Start exploring this resource today!
