About the Library

"Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity."

-Hermann Hesse

 

Welcome to the Library

Weese courtyard

The TVCC Library provides service to the TVCC our students, faculty, college staff and the surrounding communities. Our goal is to support you in your personal and academic pursuits.  We encourage you to stop by or explore the Library website to find out what we offer.

Library services are not limited in any way to the building we are in.  The Library provides equal access to resources online through our Sage Catalog system.  You can freely search through the TVCC Library as well as over 80 other Oregon Libraries.  This gives students direct access to the collections of all participating libraries including other academic libraries.  Students can visit a Sage library in person or request items to be delivered to TVCC using the Sage catalog.  The Library also subscribes to OCLC which allows students to search libraries across the United States and internationally through the WorldCat link on the Library homepage. Students  may ask a Library staff member or use the InterLibrary loan link on the Library website to borrow items not owned by TVCC or within the Sage system.

The Library subscribes to several research databases containing research information, articles and access to peer reviewed journals. The campus community may search the databases or request specific journals or magazines through InterLibrary Loan. If you have questions, please contact us.

The  TVCC Library is also a great place to hang out and relax. There are quiet, comfortable spaces as well as individual and group study rooms.  All study rooms can be reserved in advance for you or your group.  Bring your coffee, kick up your feet next to the fireplace, and curl up with a good book or get some quality study time in. The library has plenty of books, CDs and DVDs for you to enjoy. Study rooms may be used to watch DVDs in groups or individually as well.  The computer lab in the Library is available as long as we're open with printer access and wifi.

We are always looking for ways to improve library services. Please let us know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
