Library patrons: that’s you!

Research Instruction: an hour-long multi-media research presentation for all HCC faculty and their classes. A member of the library staff will explain the LRC’s resources, how to use, access, and cite them, and offer tips on search efficiency and time management. Classes are offered in LRC room 206 but staff may conduct classroom workshops if needed.  Class material may be tailored to instructor’s needs, but typical RI sessions include general library awesomeness, George Boole and his Boolean Operators, Citation styles, research tips and tricks of the trade, plagiarism (anti-plagiarism…not a “how to”), and why reading makes you cool!  To schedule a RI for you class, please contact the library by phone at (828)627.4550 or email at

Research Consultation: a one-on-one research session with an actual HCC Librarian.  Highly skilled and caffeinated librarians can assist your students in locating, evaluating, and citing sources for research papers.  We can also help with picking a research topic (and narrowing it down to a manageable topic) and reviewing a thesis statement.  For more information, please contact the library by phone at (828)627.4550 or email at

Reserves: a library service offered to HCC faculty to set aside materials for use by their classes for the semester. Reserve items may consist of either library-owned materials or personal copies.  The checkout period of Reserve items can range from In Library Use Only to Overnight Checkout depending on faculty requirements.  Reserve items will be removed at the end of each academic semester.  Please contact Heather Cyre by phone at (828)565.4083 or by email at for Reserves assistance.

Popular Theatrical Movies: a growing collection of current and classic theatrical films.  Library patrons may checkout up to 3 popular theatrical movies at one time that circulate for a 5-business day period.  Suggestions for future Popular Theatrical Movie titles may be submitted to any library staff member or by using our film suggestion form.

Popular Reading Collection: an expanding collection of current fiction and nonfiction books…think Barnes & Noble!  Library patrons may checkout as many popular reading books as they wish to carry at one time.  Popular Reading Collection materials circulate for a 3-week period.  Suggestions for future Popular Reading Collection titles may be submitted to any library staff member or by using our book suggestion form.

NCLIVE: an entire library at your fingertips!  NCLIVE houses 30,000+ eBooks, 24,000+ full text journals, magazines, and newspapers, and thousands of videos, images, maps, interactive tests and tools.  NCLIVE offers resources for every program offered at Haywood Community College and is free to any HCC community member.  NCLIVE is accessible from any computer with an internet connection, but if accessing from an off-campus location, you will need to contact the library at (828)627.4550 or for the most current login information.

NCKnows: access to an actual, live reference librarian 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  NCKnows Librarians can assist with anything your HCC Librarians can, apart from pulling books and offering witty banter at the Circulation Desk.  Chat reference is available directly through NCKnows or the library’s website at .

NCDL or The North Carolina Digital Library: powered by OverDrive, the NCDL offers access to thousands of audiobooks, eBooks, videos and music.  Books, films, or music accessed through the NCDL is downloadable to PCs, Macs, and mobile devices.  The NCDL is free to members through a North Carolina Public Library card.  NC Public Library cards are free and can be obtained from any of your local public library branches.  The NCDL may be accessed here
