Interior library amenities are not available at any campus locations. Lobby access is available at the Redwood (Grants Pass) and Riverside (Medford) Libraries for Reserve Room items or general collection requests.
All current RCC students, faculty, and staff are welcome to open a library account with their RCC ID cards.
RCC Libraries and Jackson County Library Services share physical collections. Materials can be checked out from JCLS branches with an RCC library card, and patrons who reside in Jackson County may borrow RCC materials using their JCLS card. Electronic subscriptions (eBooks, research databases) are not shared between systems.
Borrowers are responsible for any materials checked out under their account.
Most materials may be checked out for a three-week period. Items may be renewed twice (in person, by phone, or online), unless they have been requested by another patron. Patrons may request that library materials be held for them through the online catalog or by calling the library. Holds are limited to 25 at one time. Items will be held for one week, after which they will be returned to the collection.
All three campus libraries have current textbooks and other required items held on reserve. Check-out periods vary, depending on demand. The libraries also have electronics on reserve, including laptops, hard drives, headphones, and webcams. Graphing calculators can be rented for the term for a small fee.
The library has laptops available for check-out.
Please see the Library Policies page for additional information.
