Find It Here! The new bulletin board outside the Erwin Library elevator entrance provides an Erwin Library Map which is your key to a unlocking a world of fiction and non-fiction print books, locating computers and study areas, as well as finding other college departments, such as Academic Skills and Distance Education.  Similar maps are now posted in the stack areas of the library, and available in color copies at the Circulation Desk.  As always in the library, “Just Ask!  We’re here to help you succeed.”

Visit the new book exhibit in the Circulation Desk area of the Erwin Library for books to help you commemorate this year’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday.  Learn more about Dr. King and his life, particularly his work in the U. S. Civil Rights Movement during the twentieth century.  Find more information about the creation of the holiday, first signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in January 1983, at the King Center website.

What did WCC students do in 1972? How about those hairdos .. and that’s the faculty! You’ll see it was a slightly different world, but still Goldsboro and still our school as you flip through thirteen newly digitized WCC Yearbooks (Yearbooks link) published between 1964 and 1985, now part of the WCC Historical Archives.  You’ll also find the WCC Campus Voice newspaper (See: Newspapers) published between 1968 and 2008, and the WCC Renaissance literary magazine (See: Campus Publications) for 1985 through the present.
