The Library is the information resource center for Catawba Valley Community College. Resources are available to allow patrons to browse current and local events in newspapers, follow trends and historically significant events in magazines, and complete scholarly research using our selection of academic journals. Library patrons may also access information via our online resources. One such resource is NC LIVE, a collection of online databases, periodicals resources, and reference works. NC LIVE is available to all library patrons using any public or academic library in North Carolina. additionally, we maintain a small leisure reading collection of popular titles on loan from the Catawba County Public Library System.

Audiovisual Services provides access to equipment and materials for instructor use. Students may use, with instructor approval, equipment and materials for class projects.

All of the materials within the library are indexed in the OPAC, the On-Line-Public-Access Catalog. The OPAC identifies the location and status of materials in the CVCC Library.

To borrow library materials, patrons need to have a current Library User Account. Accounts may be activated at the Library Circulation Desk using the CVCC OneCard or a faculty/staff ID. Distance or cohort students and community patrons may obtain a Library account by visiting the Library Circulation Desk or by completing a Library Card Application.

Library staff members are here to assist patrons in the use of our resources. We are eager to help our student, faculty,staff,and community users succeed in their research activities.
