The LRC supports academic success by creating an atmosphere of dynamic learning for students, faculty, staff, and community learners. The LRC provides study space and access to research resources, both in print and online. Tutoring and a computer lab with printing is available. KCC students have access to the SAGE Library System, a consortium of over 75 libraries in Eastern Oregon including Eastern Oregon University, Treasure Valley Community College, Blue Mountain Community College, and Columbia Gorge Community College. Almost all of the LRC’s resources can be accessed off campus.
Print & Electronic Resources
The LRC print and electronic materials collection is developed to support students’ academic needs and the college curriculum. The collection includes books, videos, streaming media, and several academic research databases, including EBSCOhost and Gale-Cengage, which provide full-text access to thousands of journals, magazines, and newspapers across the disciplines. The SAGE consortium allows interlibrary loans and makes materials at more than 75 libraries available for student use.
