The SCC Library helps students reach their academic, personal, and professional goals by providing access to high-quality, relevant information resources and by providing an information literacy program that teaches students how to find, evaluate, and use information. The Library's resources include access to books, eBooks, journals, magazines, research databases, videos, and more. In addition, the Library provides assistance with research assignments, formatting, citations, and computer usage. Assistance is available in-person at any of our physical locations, by phone, or via our Ask a Librarian email/chat/text service.
The Library's locations are:
Each campus with a physical library features reading/work space, study rooms, computers, scanners, AV equipment, photocopier, and print collection, as well as access to a large electronic collection of databases and eBooks (SCC log in required). Print materials at each campus are geared towards each campus' needs; however, materials may be requested for next-day transfer between library locations. Materials that the SCC library does not own may be borrowed from partner libraries across the state and the country, via our various consortium memberships.
