How to & FAQ's

How does the new printing system (WEPA) work? All RCC students have been set up with a WEPA account. To access it, just head to www.wepanow.com and log-in using your Blackboard user name and password. From there, you can manage and add money onto your account using your credit or debit card. Don't have a credit/debit card? No problem. Just purchase a print card from the RCC business office during regular business hours of 8:00-4:30. There are now three ways to print with WEPA. You can print directly to the WEPA kiosk, print using a USB drive, or upload your print job to your WEPA account. The last option makes it possible to upload documents from ANY computer, on or off campus! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact 1-800-GET-WEPA.

Do I still need a library card? A lot of students are wondering if they need a library card since RCC is no longer issuing Student ID's (and in the past, the Student ID served as their library card). The answer? No. You no longer need a library card in order to check items out, but you do, however, need a valid picture ID. That said, we have library cards on hand, so if you would really like a separate library card, we are happy to make one for you. If you are a student, we will put your name and student ID number on the back of the card. Keep in mind that if you lose your library card, it will cost $3.00 to replace it.

How many items can I check out at one time? Up to 14. Special exceptions can be made upon request and usually when related to specific research or course needs. As for DVD's, you can only check out 4 at a time.

How do we know what you have on reserve for my class? Check out this link to a complete list of reserve items for each campus! It is organized by the last name of the instructor. Remember, you must be an RCC student to check out reserve items.

Can I access library resources from home? Absolutely! Any database (including eBooks!) can be accessed from home by following these steps:
1. Log onto Blackboard.
2. Select the Research tab at the top of the page.
3. Click on the RCC Library Website picture in the middle of the page. This will take you directly to the library's home page.
4. By accessing the library website through Blackboard and you will automatically be authenticated to use the databases and electronic resources!

How do I know which database to use for my class? Try the Library's Research Guides! To find them, go to the Library's website (http://www.rappahannock.edu/library/), click on the Research Guides tab, and choose your subject. There you will have access to databases that will search and find journal articles, newspaper articles, and online resources and books.

If you are just looking for a list of our most popular databases that cover a wide range of topics, check out our Popular Resources section. Remember that if you are ever having trouble finding resources, come in, call, or email one of the RCC Librarians. Find us here.

Can I use my personal laptop and use RCC's wireless connection? Absolutely! You will have wireless access to the internet anywhere in the RCC buildings and on the grounds of the college including the parking lots and picnic tables.

How can I search for books? Searching for books (both in print, electronic, and audio) and DVD's is as simple as going to Google. Just go to the Library's website (http://www.rappahannock.edu/library/) and click on the Catalog tab in the middle of the screen. You can search for items by keywords (anywhere), title, or author.

You found an item that is on another campus and you need it transferred? Simply click on the title of the item and then the location link of the item (at the bottom of the record) and select "Request this item". You will need to enter in your Blackboard Username and Password, select the campus you'll be picking the item up at, and we will call you when it comes in. Items usually take about 24 hours to be transferred. Need it that same day? Give us a call!

Do you have computers in the library? Yes! Both libraries have success labs with computers. These computers have Microsoft Office and other programs you might need for your classes. If you would prefer a laptop, we have laptops available for check-out at the circulation desk. You must be a student with a valid ID.

Do I have to make an appointment to see the librarian? Librarians are on staff at both the Glenns and Warsaw campus. Feel free to come in anytime you need help. If you'd like to make sure one of us can meet with you for reference help, just give the library a call to see if we are available. Glenns @ 758-6710 or Warsaw @ 333-6710.
