The Library collection housed in Raymond Library in Raymond Hall consists of books, periodicals, and internet resources. The primary purpose of the collection is to provide materials which support the college curriculum.
Reserve materials are items place “on reserve” by individual faculty members for use by their students. These are normally high-demand items and may be borrowed for only a short period of time, usually for two hours of in-library use. The reserve collection includes some current textbooks if instructors have placed copies on reserve.
The Media Services collection, housed in the Media Center on the second floor of Raymond Hall, consists of DVDs, slides, and various types of equipment, including, but not limited to, laptop computers, LCD projectors, digital cameras, portable microphones systems, portable easels, tape recorders, and slide projectors. Most items in the Media Center only circulate to YVC employees; however, students may view and/or listen to resources. Ask in the Media Center for more information.
Additional information about Library and Media Services acquisitions and collections is available in the Collection Development Policy, approved by Administrative Council on July 28, 2009.
