LRC - Mission Statement

LRC - Library Mission Statement
The library provides instruction to ECC students and local patrons in effective use and evaluation of information. Because students have access to the library’s broad spectrum of learning resources in diverse formats, learning how to best use and evaluate that information fosters independent learning. The overriding purpose of all library operations is to provide instruction and support of patrons for effective use of learning resources, and to implement, enrich, and support the educational programs of the College to meet community needs not within the realm of public library services.

LRC - Library Collections
Both the Tarboro and Rocky Mount campus libraries offer basic reference and curricular resources. The combined collection of approximately 35,407 units of print and AV material is accessed through the Sirsi online catalog, which also contains the holdings of 44 other North Carolina community colleges.

LRC - Library Special Collections
Special collections include the Early Childhood Collection on the Rocky Mount campus and the North Carolina and Local History Collection on the Tarboro campus.
