Find Your Niche in 2019

Niche Academy

Do you know of the many online resources available to you with your Irving Library Card? There are so many possibilities to fit your needs, from ebooks with AXIS 360 to language learning with Rosetta Stone to dozens of databases, such as ReferenceUSA. We understand that it can be overwhelming to choose the resource you need, only to realize you also need to learn how to use the resource itself.

We are excited to introduce a new learning tool that will help teach you how to use library resources. Niche Academy is a service that offers quick video tutorials to get you started with all of our digital services. If videos aren’t your thing, there are written instructions with pictures available as you scroll through the tutorials.

Niche Academy is featured on our website on the following pages: eBooks, Tech-4-U and Online Classes. Accessing tutorials is as easy as 1-2-3.

  • Go to the Irving Public Library Digital Downloads, Research & eLearning, or Tech-4-U pages depending on the service you are planning to use. [Tip: Use the new buttons for eBooks and Tech-4-U to quickly navigate our new website.]
  • On the right-hand side of the page you will find a purple button with an arrow that says “Tutorials”. Click on the button and a Niche Academy side bar will pop out with digital service tutorials to choose from.
  • Select the digital service you are interested in learning about and start watching. You can choose to watch lessons for the type of device you are using, a quick intro on how to set up an account, or watch all of them to learn as much as possible.

That’s it. Get started with Niche Academy today! It’s free and you can watch tutorial videos as many times as you need.
