Library hours may be extended during examination periods. The College’s central Learning Resources Center/Library is maintained at the Washington, DC campus and provides Learning Resources Center support to the Vienna, VA campus. A professional librarian oversees both locations and is generally available at the DC campus when classes are in session. Computers providing both internet access and the Microsoft Office Suite are available for faculty, staff and student use at both libraries. The Librarian schedules instructional sessions on information literacy, library research skills, internet searching, commercial database searching, and on any other library-related topic of interest to faculty and students.
