SCC Library Mission

Shawnee Community College's mission is to serve the needs of the students and our diverse community by providing quality higher education, community education, training, and services that are accessible, affordable, and promote life-long learning.

The SCC library serves the research needs of the students, staff, faculty and residents of the Shawnee Community College district.

The Learning Resource Center (LRC/Library)

The Learning Resource Center (LRC/Library) at Shawnee Community College offers access to a comprehensive field of information. The LRC's collections in print format include over 38,000 books, 41 magazine titles, and 10 newspapers. Through computer access from the library PC workstations, information can be retrieved from about 30 specialized databases. The databases are electronic collections of articles from popular magazines and scholarly journals, with material suitable for academic and personal research. The library also offers about 2,000 videos and DVDs, a local history collection, and a children's literature collection.

SCC's LRC/Library is a member of the Illinois Heartland Library System. Through the system, SCC students and staff are able to borrow materials from other member libraries. Materials can also be borrowed from out-of-system libraries.

The library also offers three small rooms for meetings, study groups, and audio-visual material viewing. The rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Residents of the Shawnee Community College district over 18 years of age are welcome to use the resources of SCC LRC/Library at no charge. A proof of residence (such as a driver's license) is required to obtain a community user library card. SCC students, staff, and community residents are encouraged to visit and utilize the LRC's print, audio-visual, and on-line material. LRC staff members are happy to assist patrons in locating items.
