Library Services

The library serves students, faculty and staff of the college as an information and technology resource center. The RCC library serves the general public in our service area. The Warsaw campus location serves as the Richmond County Public Library through a memorandum of agreement with Richmond County.

The library offers 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 research assistance, individual and class research instruction, intercampus and interlibrary loans, course reserve services, and media viewing and listening. The library’s Quicksearch Catalog provides information related to both campus locations and online books, journals, and videos, allowing students access to library materials on and off campus. The library provides access to materials in a variety of formats to include hardbound books in print, online, and audio format, as well as DVDs and streaming videos online. Free home delivery of library books and DVDs is available to students in off-campus or online courses.

Databases include full-text journals, magazines, newspapers, reference books, and audiobooks to support student coursework. Library collections are continually updated and improved. The collection development policy encourages faculty and student participation in the materials selection process.

The library participates in the Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA), providing access to resources and services available 24/7 through the library website for students, faculty, and staff with their myRCC login. Please visit the library website to learn more about library services.
