Library resources and services for Norco College Faculty

Faculty Information

Borrowing Privileges

Current Faculty members can borrow library materials by presenting valid staff id when charging out books. Books, with the exception of items on reserve, can be kept for a full semester. DVDs and other audio / visual materials circulate for 7 days unless a specific amount of time is requested.

Textbook Reserves

If you have materials that you would like to have available for your students at the library, fill out a Library Reserve Request Form and bring the items to the Circulation Desk. Your items will be made available for student use within 3 working days.

Students can see what has been placed on Reserve by searching Reserves in the Library Catalog. They can be found under your last name, or the name of the course.

RCCD Intercampus Loans

Books from Moreno Valley College or RCC can be sent to our library and should arrive within 3 working days. Books can be returned at any of the three campus libraries. Contact the Reference Librarian or a Circulation Clerk for more assistance.

Interlibrary Loan

If you need materials that are not available from any of the RCCD Campus libraries, you can request an Interlibrary Loan. There may be a cost to you for this service since many libraries charge the borrowing library to cover shipping and handling costs. Talk to the Reference Librarian to get the details. This service is not available to students.

Curriculum Development

Proposing a new course or program to the curriculum committee? The curriculum process now calls for a Joint Review of Library Resources. Call 951-739-7852 for more information.
