The Arthur C. Banks, Jr. Library is located on the entire 5th floor, and is an integral part of the educational process at Capital Community College. In support of CCC’s mission, the library provides a broad range of services and resources. Serving students, faculty, and staff, the library offers access to computers, and a collection of over 45,000 print volumes and many research databases including subjects such as general information, nursing, literature, history, business, psychology and sociology, among others. All databases can be accessed both on and off-campus using a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
The Library’s website (http://capital.libguides.com/library) allows students to connect to the library catalog, the research databases, and a variety of subject-specific library research guides. Some topics include how to cite sources, evaluate websites, and a variety of multicultural heritage guides. In addition to our collection, Capital Community College students, faculty and staff have access to regional and national collections of books and other resources via interlibrary loan service. Capital patrons can also borrow directly from any public library in the state using their public library card. Students are encouraged to seek assistance from the library’s experienced staff. In addition to research assistance and computer help, librarians offer instructional sessions to help students effectively tackle the research process and understand the importance of information literacy.
