Library and Learning Commons

The Library and Learning Commons (LLC) at each campus and center at the College is designed to offer students a wide variety of quality study facilities, learning resources, research assistance, and tutoring services.

LLC facilities offer students convenient group and individual work/study rooms and environments. Computer labs at each location offer state-of-the-art computers, software programs, and multimedia technology. All facilities provide high-speed wireless network accessibility.

Library resources include both physical and online information materials. These materials support the educational programs of the College and provide recreational reading materials of interest to students. Physical materials include books, journals, magazines, and DVD collections. Online information resources provide 24/7 access to hundreds of databases that provide full text access to millions of articles, eBooks, and streaming video collections.

Research assistance is provided by highly qualified librarians. Librarians provide a wide range of services, including subject-specific instruction for whole classes, group orientations and tours, and individual assistance at the LLC’s reference desk or virtually through the LLC website. Students can contact librarians through live chat services or by scheduling a virtual research appointment.

Tutoring services are available to all currently registered students. LLC tutors include both full-time and part-time professional tutors as well as peer tutors who work part-time and are currently enrolled students at the College. Tutors are trained to assist students in a wide array of subject areas, including math, science, writing, languages, reading, computer technology, and more. In addition to in-person tutoring services, the LLC also provides students with free 24/7 online tutoring services in most subject areas through the Brainfuse online tutoring platform.
