Columbia State Community College Library
The purpose of the library is to “provide the library resources, services, technologies, instruction, and assistance necessary to meet the information and research needs of the college community, support the college’s mission and programs, and promote lifelong learning.”
In support of the College mission and vision and the library purpose, the library selects, acquires, organizes, manages, and preserves a range of information resources appropriate to the College’s curriculum and mission, provides access to information resources through subscriptions to electronic databases, extends library resources by networking and sharing resources with other libraries, and offers reference and instructional services appropriate to materials owned or accessed.
The Library Instruction LibGuide for Columbia State Community College is a one-stop shop for students who need assistance developing a paper topic, finding relevant sources for the topic, and determining whether the sources meet the requirements of timeliness, accuracy, and authoritativeness that are essential for proper research results. You will also find guides on how to navigate and access sources from our online library catalog and collection of scholarly article databases.
