The Top Things to know about our Library
We Have Textbooks
Instructors often leave their textbook on reserve in the library. PSEC has most CJC and FIP textbooks. If you forget yours, or decide not to buy one and to use the library's, just check it out at the desk and know that you can use it in the library for up to two hours at a time.
We have loads of resources available online through our library guides, NCLIVE and the Waketech Databases. You can also access the library catalog and request materials from other libraries if we don't have what you need. You will need a password to access our databases online, just stop by the library with your student ID card for more information.
You may like to listen to music while you study, or prefer to study in groups, but your classmates may prefer total quiet. The entire library has been designated quiet study space so that those who need it will have it available. Talking is strongly discouraged; please respect those around you! Groups wishing to study together can often use the attached classroom; simply ask the librarian for access.
Laptops to check out
The library checks out laptops to be used in the library (during the week) or to take home for the weekend. You need to have a student ID and Driver's License and no fines or holds on your record. For more information on this please visit the library, or phone (919) 866-6017.
