The library supports the educational goals of the college by:
- Providing a balanced, up-to-date collection of print, non-print and electronic resources;
- Helping students become efficient and effective consumers of information, able to find, evaluate, analyze, use and communicate data.
- Teaching critical thinking and information seeking skills.
Additionally, in keeping with the community college philosophy, the Sacramento City College Library is committed to serving, as much as possible within the constraints of its primary mission, the neighboring community.
