Welcome to the RCBC Library!

Please note the library will be closed from July 3 - July 5 in observance of Independence Day.

To ensure our ebook platforms remain updated and secure, ProQuest will be performing maintenance on Ebook Central Saturday, June 27 from 12 pm - 3 pm. We apologize for any inconvenience​ and appreciate your patience as this service maybe unavailable during this time. 

In-Person Library Services Are Suspended For RCBC Students, Staff & Faculty

The state has ordered on-campus college libraries and computer labs to shut down, so we will not be able to offer students access as planned. Many library services are available online, including Email, Text, or Chat with a Librarian.

NOTE: Interlibrary Loan and BCLS holds are suspended until further notice.

RCBC Library Materials

At this time (May 14, 2020), all RCBC Library materials are due on July 31, 2020. If you wish to return a Chromebook, please contact the library to make arrangements.We request that you hold onto all other RCBC Library materials until July 31, 2020 unless there is another announcement. If you have any questions, please contact the RCBC Library either through email library@rcbc.edu, chat, or text.

All Classes Temporarily Online- Library Barcode Help

Due to the temporary reassignment of all in-person courses to online, if you are a current RCBC student and you do not already have a library barcode (located on the back of your student ID), you can fill out this form: Temporary Summer 2020 Barcode. A member of the library staff will send a verification email with your library barcode to your RCBC student email.

If you do not know your barcode number or you are unable to access online library services, please contact a librarian during our normal operating hours and we will resolve the issue.

Instruction Assessment

Library Lending and Fees

The college will enforce fines for not complying with library regulations.

  1. Print materials in the general collection circulate for 28 days, with media circulating for one week.
  2. A person may borrow a maximum of five items on one subject, with a total of 35 items allowed to be borrowed at one time.
  3. Borrowers are responsible for returning materials on or before the due date.
  4. The library will attempt to send out notices advising the borrower of outstanding materials and/or outstanding charges. We will use the contact information in our system to send these notices. Borrowers are responsible for notifying the library directly of any changes in contact information.
  5. A fine of $0.15 per day, per item is charged on overdue items, excluding media (DVDs for example) which are $1.00 per day, per item and reserve items which carry a substantial hourly fine.
  6. Chromebooks borrowed from the Library accrue late fees of $2.00 per hour overdue. If a Chromebook is more than 24 hours overdue, a $300 replacement fee is assessed against the borrower's account.
  7. Mobile chargers accrue late fees of $2.00 per hour overdue.
  8. Library privileges are suspended when a borrower accrues more than $10.00 in fees and fines.
  9. Failure to return any library materials results in a minimum charge of $50.00 per item or the actual replacement cost, whichever is higher, plus a processing fee. Replacement of the item is at the discretion of the library.
  10. With very few exceptions (see library personnel) reserve items may not be removed from the library. Any reserve item removed from the library will immediately result in a substantial item replacement fee being applied to the borrower’s account.
  11. Current textbooks are always considered reserve items.
  12. Fines due to any RCBC library or any branch of the County library system may result in suspension of borrowing or library access privileges.
