Welcome Back: Summer 2017

Welcome Back: Summer 2017

 

So it turns out Alice Cooper was wrong: School is not out forever. It is not even out for the Summer. Though knowing the central Texas heat, spending time in the air-conditioned Avery Building is a pretty wise decision. Spending time in the Round Rock Campus Library, located in Avery Room 255, would be an even better decision.

The RRC Library offers a number of resources and services that can help you out. There are 11 public computers available in RM 255 and another 27 in RM 255D within the library. These computers have access to the full Microsoft Office Suite, a number of Adobe products, and other pieces of software. They are also connected to both a black and white and color printer. And of course students have access to all of the Texas State University Library’s online resources through these computers.

 

Students will also have access to the library staff who are available to answer questions, help guide research, and assist with circulation. Librarians Anthony Guardado and Josh Brynildsen are also available for research consultations. Welcome to the RCC Library for the Summer 2017 term. Please, Come In And Find Out More.

The RRC is home to a small but relevant collection of physical material. However, should a necessary item be only available at Alkek Library in San Marcos the library staff is happy to help request the item be delivered and held at the RRC Library. Speaking of the RRC Library staff, we are always available to answer questions and help with research….Come In and Find Out More.
