Welcome to the Clyde A. Erwin, Jr. Library, located in the Wayne Learning Center, with entrances on the third floor beside the elevators and on the third floor landing of the atrium stairwell. Part of the Community College Libraries in North Carolina (CCLINC) consortium, with a shared online catalog, the Erwin Library print collections include nearly thirty-four thousand books and more than thirty print periodical and newspaper subscriptions. Accessible through the WCC Single Search discovery service are nearly twenty-five thousand streaming videos, as well as thousands of electronic books, articles and images from twenty-nine research databases in addition to those subscribed to through NC LIVE. Our mission includes providing “the highest standard of professional and friendly service to all patrons, including both individual and classroom instruction in information literacy.”
We’ve invited some very friendly dragons to Children’s Storytime in the Erwin Library on Wednesday, January 14th from 9:00-10:00 a.m., and we know they’ll have some excellent adventures to share with you! Oh, and they’ve promised to keep all fire-breathing to the absolute minimum.
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.”
As the radio stations begin to play “Jingle Bells” and ‘Winter Wonderland,” our thoughts turn longingly to the Christmas break; but, until then, a cheerful selection of books are on display in the Erwin Library Circulation Desk area for you to browse, check out and take home to read. Cozy up to the fireplace DVD flickering on your television screen and delve into a winter reader’s reverie.
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.
As well as browsing among, or checking out, books from the Erwin Library exhibits and collections to read about these topics, you may wish to discover more on the internet from relevant links found in the Erwin Library’s Blog.
