Where in the world are the LRC’s books?

Our books have seen koala bears, tread in the footsteps of Vikings, and camped in the shadow of Mount Ranier. Their many friends include Eagles, Aggies, and Tigers. Check out the interactive map to see some of the many places we have loaned our resources during the past several years.

As an active participant in the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) program the LRC has loaned books all over North Carolina, across the nation, and even around the globe. We can also borrow books, DVDs, CDs, and even periodicals from other institutions. Through the Community College Libraries in North Carolina (CCLINC) and WorldCat programs we have access to shared catalogs with more than 50 million records and usually receive the needed materials within 5 to 10 business days.We’re proud of our large and diverse collection but if you cannot find the resource that you need here at HCC let us know and we’ll try to find it at another library. For more information about ILL check out our ILL FAQ page or contact a librarian at 828.627.4550/
