Weese Building - (541) 881-5929
The TVCC Library, located on the second floor of the Weese Building, maintains a collection of books, periodicals, newspapers, videos, compact discs, videotaped courses, and microfiches. Also in the library is a student computer lab, with access to word processing, the Internet, full-text periodical databases, and the campus network.
The library staff supports the curriculum, provides instruction and assistance to students, aids the professional development of the College staff, and serves the cultural and recreational interests of area citizens. The public is welcome. Whenever possible, the TVCC Library serves as a backup resource for other libraries and their patrons. Requests for materials not owned by the library will be made through an international computerized inter-library loan system.
The TVCC library is a member of the Sage Library System, a combined catalog of 76 school, public and academic libraries in 10 eastern Oregon counties. This consortium has a state-of the-art automation system that allows patrons of each library to search the holdings of the others simultaneously. Patrons may request their own material from other consortium members. Requested materials from consortium partners can be acquired quickly and easily.
Library patrons have access to GALE and SIRS, full text databases for quick and easy research. Mini classes are held four times per week to provide instruction for use of the Sage System, Gale, and SIRS. These databases may be accessed from computers anywhere on campus or from home.
The library currently houses about 33,000 books and 125 periodicals, including college catalogs and information materials from other higher education institutions. Patrons also have access to a copy machine, computers, printers, video cassette players, and a microfiche reader/printer. The library is devoted to the successful pursuit of learning and suggestions for improvement, including purchasing requests, are always welcome.
