Library Stories: Home

  Your Story Matters!  

How has the library contributed to your success at HCC? Did librarians help you find sources to write your paper? Did you find a quiet library space to study for your exam? Maybe library staff provided a listening ear (or a hotspot) when you really needed it? 

We want to hear your library story so that we can better advocate for libraries in the future. If you give us permission to share your story, we will only do so with your first name and library location.

Use the form on this page to share YOUR library story.

Thank you so much for your valuable assistance. I appreciate the work libraries do. You are one of the under-acknowledged heroes of student success.

The staff at the library is exceptional. They are always pleasant, enthusiastic and eager to hunt down any information you request whether it is by email or in person. The Library Orientation sessions are exceptional. Each time I teach ENGL 1302 I bring my class to the library for an entire class session so everyone can learn how to gather information for their research paper. Some students are empowered by discovering how they can find any information they need through the HCC Library databases, and they are the library staff are "hands-on" in showing/assisting them in navigating the HCC library online.

Through library orientations HCC librarians have instructed my students on how to use the HCC library for research and for pleasure reading. They have demonstrated how to search databases, look for peer reviewed material and perform career searches. They have provided easily accessed reference material on how to cite using APA, MLA and other kinds of protocol.
