We are delighted to welcome you to the KCKCC Library!
The library is the heart of any college and we are excited to assist you. The library has over 70,000+ volumes of books, documents, and other resources on-site open over 70 hours per week during the fall and spring semesters. Also available are thousands of electronic library resources available 24 hours a day.
The Library web site provides a brief introduction to the services and resources available throughout the Library, as well as information on hours of operation and guides to assist you in successfully locating and using both print and non-print resources.
One of the Library’s aims is to provide access to any information in any format. Through its web-based electronic resources and interlibrary loan, students and faculty have access to research materials on a global as well as regional and national level.
You have access to the internet and various web-based electronic resources from any computer in the library and on campus, plus access from home if you are a currently enrolled student. At Kansas City Kansas Community College the book stacks and periodicals are open and you can freely browse and select the materials you wish to borrow.
Perhaps our most valuable resource is the dedicated library faculty, staff and student assistants. Together, they work to assist students and faculty with their information and research needs. Among the many useful services they provide are reference assistance, interlibrary loan, and group and individual instruction. If you are unable to locate materials, or encounter difficulty in using any resource or service, please ask for help from the Library staff.
The Library exists for you. We strive to ensure that students, faculty, staff, and other members of the College community have the necessary resources and materials for meeting their information needs at every level of their educational pursuit.
