Use the library Search to find books on specific subjects. You'll find print books and some ebooks.

  • Books that check out are on the library 2nd floor. 
  • Reference books are on the 1st floor. They're a great starting place for research.
  • Partner Libraries search will find books at Gonzaga and other area college libraries.

Your SCC Library has books on these subjects and more:

  • Information literacy
  • Rubrics
  • Students - Rating of
  • Assessment
  • Library orientation for college students

You will find books like these and many more: 

Periodical databases

Access databases through the library homepage to find  periodical articles on teaching and assessing information literacy in various disciplines.

If you locate articles which are not available full-text online, request the articles at the library.

Can't find it at SCC?

SCC faculty and staff (and students) have access to several other library collections

SFCC & IEL materials

When you search the Library Catalog you may find books and videos on your topic at SFCC or the IEL libraries. Click the Request this item link to have an item sent to SCC for you to pick up.  If it's more convenient for you to stop by the Falls Library, you'll just need your ID card for check out.

WIN Borrow Libraries

The SCC Library participates in a cooperative of inland northwest libraries called WIN (Washington Idaho Network). WIN includes:

  • Gonzaga University,
  • Whitworth University, and
  • University of Idaho, among others.

Your faculty ID card can be used to check out books directly from any WIN library, and you can return them at SCC library. You can also search WIN Borrow Libraries in the Library Catalog to find and request books.

Materials at other libraries

If you want a book or periodical article that is not available at the CCS libraries we can get it for you. We'll locate the library that owns it and request an interlibrary loan. (Keep in mind that it could take ten days to two weeks for the item to arrive if it's in a library outside the Spokane area.)
