Library Resources for CCCC Faculty
Our Mission Statement:
The Library supports the educational experience by providing current innovations in information retrieval as well as traditional library resources and services. The Library staff offers individual and classroom instruction in the effective use of these resources, and provides access to resources not owned by the Library through interlibrary loan and electronic databases.
Concordia Campus Library
Resources at the Concordia campus are divided into two separate collections--printed materials located in the Concordia Library and audiovisual materials in the Audiovisual Lab across the hall from the library. Materials in both collections can be found through our online catalog. This Library collection incorporates almost 27,000 materials, 25 magazine titles, and five national and local newspapers. The A-V Lab contains audiovisual materials which instructors use to augment classroom instruction. The Lab also provides viewing and listening equipment for in-lab patron use.
The Concordia Campus Library now has a coffee shop “Hava Java” which is open Monday-Thursday from 8 am-8 pm and Fridays from 8 am-4 pm. Drinks such as mochas, lattes, chai tea, coffee, hot chocolate and other specialty drinks are featured. Food items such as muffins, granola bars, and biscotti are available as well for when faculty need a little caffeine and something to eat on the way to class.
The Library hours on all instructional days are 7:45 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. Hours for non-instructional days and Summer Sessions are posted on the Library Webpage under Hours.

The library catalog is located on the main library webpage under Library Resources -- Search the Library Catalog.
You can access the library catalog from anywhere that you have Internet access.
FACULTY/STAFF -- If you are a current employee of CCCC, your username to access your library account in our library catalog is your staff/faculty ID number. The first time that you log-in, your password is USERPASS (all caps, all one word). You will then be prompted to change your password and this will become your new password.
