Libraries

Front Range Community College offers a wide range of library services to its students, faculty, staff, and, on some campuses, the public. Our Westminster Campus shares its library with the City of Westminster. Our Larimer Campus shares its library with the Poudre River Public Library District. And at our campus in Boulder County, a vast online database combined with local library resources help students meet their library research needs. Students in Online Learning programs have access to their home campus library in addition to a variety of library subscription databases.

In the libraries, staff members provide expert assistance and a variety of materials, including books, magazines, professional journals, newspapers, indexes, and other printed sources. The libraries also provide online access to academic databases and e-books. These online resources can be accessed on or off campus.

FRCC libraries participate in partnerships that allow students to check out materials from other Colorado libraries, including the University of Colorado and Colorado State University. Inter-library loan service is also provided, which allows students to obtain books, articles, and media from other libraries.

All FRCC libraries have strong bibliographic instruction programs to assist students in successfully using the information resources available to them. Electronic classrooms on all campuses allow for demonstration and practice of searching databases.
