The library at each campus serves students, faculty and staff of the college. The library at the Warsaw campus also serves as Richmond County Public Library through a memorandum of agreement with the college.
The libraries offer a wide variety of services and resources to meet informational needs, support the curriculum, strengthen instruction, promote research, and enhance the overall college experience for students. Library services include intercampus and interlibrary loans, research assistance, course reserve services, media viewing and listening, individual and class research instruction. The library catalog provides information related to both campus locations and allows students access to library materials on and off campus. The libraries provide access to materials in a variety of formats to include hardbound books in print, online, and audio format. Databases include full-text journals, magazines, newspapers, articles, reference books, and audio research tools to support student coursework. Library collections are continually updated and improved. A collection development policy encourages faculty and student participation in the acquisition process. A valid picture ID is required to check out library materials or obtain a library card.
The library participates in the Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA) providing access to resources and services available 24/7 through the library web site for students, faculty, and staff with their My RCC login. LRC Live is a 24/7 “ask a librarian” cooperative. Please visit the library web site to learn more about library services.
