Schedule Research Appointments Online


Students can easily schedule one-on-one research appointments with our knowledgeable librarians. These sessions are designed to give your students the personalized support they need to excel in their research projects. Each appointment lasts for a convenient 25-minutes, which means they can get the guidance they need without taking up too much class time.

Purchase Suggestions

Ninety-five percent of the SFCC Library's physical collection predates 2010. In an effort to update the collection, we encourage you to reach out to the librarian in your subject area with suggestions for purchases for the print collection. Please keep in mind that our funding primarily covers supplemental materials that support our curriculum and research needs of students, rather than textbook purchases. Your input and suggestions are invaluable in ensuring that our library resources remain relevant and beneficial to the academic community.
