Reference ServicesThe Reference Desk is located on the first floor of HCC Library. A librarian is available at the Reference Desk during normal library hours. The reference librarian will help you to find and use information efficiently and effectively. Librarians are familiar with HCC departments and activities, and do "ready reference" by assisting you in finding answers to factual questions. HCC's librarians are dedicated to teaching information literacy and research skills to locate and evaluate information for papers, speeches, and other class projects, as well as to promoting life-long learning. Students can receive one-to-one assistance or arrange a small-group session with a librarian. Faculty who wish to schedule a library instruction session for their class(es) are encouraged to visit the Reference Desk or call 845-9199 to discuss their research needs.
