Some physical textbooks are available on reserve. Check your syllabus for the textbook and the edition. The library may have an older edition than what is required for your class. A RCBC student ID with a current semester sticker and an account balance under $10 of fines is required to check out a reserve textbook. Reserve textbooks can be borrowed for up to 2 hours (exactly). Reserve textbooks returned late (even by 1 minute) will result in fines. Reserve textbooks are not allowed to leave campus.
NOTE: the library currently does not have any access to online textbooks
Please check the catalog or databases, or contact RCBC Library to see if book is currently available. Here are a few suggestions:
RCBC Library is part of the Burlington County Library Sysytem (BCLS)!
Your RCBC Library barcode allows you to check out physical material at other BCLS branches! (separate BCLS Library card needed to be able to access their online resources)
If another branch has a book that you are looking for, either call them to have it placed on hold for you, or we will be happy to call them to have them place a book on hold for you. Note: a book that shows up as being in another branch may be currently in use by another patron or otherwise not on the shelf, so save yourself a trip and call to double check the book's availability.
If another branch has a book that you want and you are not able to visit that branch, we can order it to be delivered to the RCBC Library for you! Note: this method may take 2 weeks or longer for the book to arrive at RCBC.
If a book that you want is not available in the RCBC Library or BCLS, we can attempt to order the book from an outside library to be delivered to the RCBC Library. Note: this method may take 2 weeks or longer for the book to arrive at RCBC.
Faculty Book Requests
Print books are arranged on the shelf in Library of Congress Call Number order. Each call number begins with an alphanumeric base (e.g., "BF109.J8") that is followed by a cutter and a date of publication (e.g., "A25 1993"). See a librarian if you need assistance.
Call Number Range (Where to Find Books on the Bookshelves)
are accessible directly from the Library catalog. If you're interested in finding ebooks only, head to Ebook Central or eBook Collection. To log in, use the barcode located on the back of your student ID and your pin number. You have the option to download ebooks to a device, but we strongly recommend reading them online to take advantage of the full suite of available tools. Create a personal account using your Library barcode and PIN to manage and organize your ebook reading and research.
Workshops for citing and plagiarism are held throughout the semester. For times, please check the RCBC Library website.
