There is a library on each of the three campuses which provides information resources, instruction, computers, laptop loans, group study spaces and other services. The campus libraries collectively offer a book collection totaling 200,000 volumes. The library provides access to an extensive database collection consisting of thousands of online periodicals, newspapers, and electronic books. Library databases include Academic Search Complete, ArtStor, CINAHL, JSTOR Digital Archive, Gale Literature, and ScienceDirect. In addition, the library offers access to a variety of streaming video titles. Students and faculty can access library collections in the campus libraries or from off-campus through the library website at using their MYSCCC ID/PW to authenticate through the library system.

Library Research

Library faculty assist students with their information and research needs through in-person, online chat, and telephone reference service. In collaboration with classroom instructors, librarians offer class sessions on effective critical thinking skills that promote information literacy. The libraries provide additional opportunities for students to gain proficiency using and evaluating information sources by offering a one-credit course, Introduction to College Research (LIB101), which is offered in both traditional face-to-face and online modalities.

Additional Resources

The library collaborates with other university and college libraries to share resources allowing students and faculty access to other collections on Long Island, in New York State, and beyond. Students and faculty can also request materials from other SUNY libraries using the library’s OneSearch discovery tool and items will be delivered to the user’s local SCCC campus library for pick-up.
