Faculty Resources


The Library & Learning Services provide research help, tutoring, and proctoring in one convenient location. Services include personalized research and tutoring support; student-centered study and collaborative learning spaces; and access to course-related books, databases, media, and more. Students can borrow textbooks through the quarterly lending program or on reserve for in-library use. Visit our library website homepage for hours of operation, to search for books and articles, and to schedule a research appointment.






Math tutors are available all library hours to help with everything from Algebra to Statistics and Calculus, connect with them on Cranium Cafe. Students can meet with a Writing tutor to get focused feedback on draft papers and assignments. Subject-specific tutors such as Sign Language, Biology, and Spanish are scheduled throughout the week.

Do your students need help with research papers?  

A librarian will work one-on-one through Cranium Cafe to help develop student research skills.

Do you want in-class research instruction?  

Email library@ltcc.edu to schedule an in class hands-on session.

The library’s online resources, such as the catalog and online databases, can be accessed 24 hours a day via Find Books and Find Articles.

 Unfortunately, in person proctoring is suspended at this time. Please contact DRC for those students who need testing accommodations.

Since students are not able to access reserves on site at this time, the Library and Learning Services has expanded our reserve program online.
