Learn about the RCC Anne Moss-Biggs Library and the ins-and-outs of information literacy

Computer Access

The first floor of the library has desktop computers for student use. These computers are equipped with a variety of office software for student use such as the latest version of the MS Office Suite, Adobe Reader, as well as, access to Quickbooks software. Computer access is operated on a first-come, first serve basis. There is no time limit for RCC students' computer use.

In addition to desktop computers, the library has laptop computers for in-house use.  RCC students may check out a laptop by presenting a valid RCC Student ID/Library Card to the front desk staff. Laptops must be returned to the front desk before leaving the library. Laptops cannot be checked out for use outside of the library or overnight; library equipment is strictly limited to in-house use.

Lab assistants are available to assist you with basic computing tasks such as printing documents, making copies,


Wireless Capabilities

The library is also a wireless facility in that students may use their laptops, as well as library laptops and tablets within the library. To utilize the wireless capabilities, select GuestRCC on your list of available networks on your device.

Note: At times, the library staff may limit the number of laptops checked out to students when wireless capacity is reached.
