The college libraries are information centers which support academic transfer programs and technology/occupational programs for both campus-based and distance education modes of delivery. Each college library maintains a substantial collection of books, journals and electronic resources, including online databases and electronic books, all on a variety of subjects. Additionally, there are special collections of newspapers, popular magazines, pamphlets, career materials and technical periodicals. Other resources may include slides, tapes, compact discs, computer software, videodisks, videotapes, and films.
The college librarians introduce students, faculty and staff to the tools needed to navigate an increasingly complex world of information resources. Librarians are available to work with students individually or as a group. Through library instruction, students increase their knowledge base and improve information literacy as they pursue personal or academic goals and enhance lifelong learning skills.
Willful damage to library materials (or property) or actions disturbing other library users may lead to the loss of library privileges. Damage cases are referred to the appropriate authorities for further action. All books and other library materials must be returned before the end of each semester. Student transcripts will not be issued until all library records are cleared. For more information on the college libraries, visit www.dcccd.edu/Current Students/Libraries/.
