The Learning Resource Center houses the Library and several other resources available to both students and staff.
A complete list of Library Services is available online. Instructors can arrange Library Orientations for their classes if the students will be conducting research for term papers or other projects.
Everyone must obtain an access card in order to check out books and videos, and to use the library's online services. A card can be obtained from Operations (OPS -- See Campus Map). Please bring a photo ID and your Employee ID number.
LEARNING SKILLS AND TUTORING PROGRAM
The mission of the Learning Skills and Tutoring Program is to help SCC students achieve college success by providing them with appropriate resources and assistance designed to meet their academic needs.
The Learning Skills and Tutoring Center provides orientations for all classes. These orientations are especially beneficial for English as a Second Language, Nursing, Athletics, and College Success classes including special emphasis sections recommended for re-entry and disabled students. Our goal is to make the Learning Skills and Tutoring Center a familiar area that the students will feel comfortable coming to for assistance. In addition, the Learning Skills and Tutoring Center makes presentations to individual classrooms and to academic departments upon request. Faculty may refer their entire classroom or individual students to tutoring.
Faculty may also schedule workshops, "by request" on topics such as time management, how to read a textbook, and test taking skills. Additionally, test taking workshops have been custom designed to meet the needs of nursing students.
If you have any questions about any of the services provided by the Learning Skills and Tutoring Center, please contact Ginnie Gessford, Faculty Coordinator at (916) 558-2600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to http://web.scc.losrios.edu/tutoring/stories/storyReader$7
INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA AND COMPUTING
Instructional Media and Computing, located in LR 144, has a number of services available to staff. Equipment is available for check-out, such as laptop computers, projectors, DVD equipment cart, CD players, etc. This is also where instructors come to check out videos. Videos can be placed on hold for a specific time period in order to ensure that they are available when needed. Additions to the video library can also be requested through Instructional Media.
Distance Education is learning outside of the classroom through such mediums as television and the internet. Distance Education courses require fewer classroom hours and are therefore optimal for students who are working, have families, or other obligations. As an instructor, you might decide to teach a Distance Education course. There are several opportunities during Flex Week and at other times during the academic year for you to learn about this option.
