Library Newsletter - March 2020


“My professor suggested booking a librarian, and it proved to be even more beneficial than I had expected.” - a CCC student

If you need help with research, book a thirty-minute appointment to meet one-on-one with a librarian. Provide some information about your assignment and research goals and we'll contact you to set up the appointment. Appointments are available Mon-Thurs from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Friday 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. You can meet in person in the library or schedule an online appointment using Zoom.  Please book your appointment at least two days in advance.
