With a physical collection of almost 60,000 items and electronic subscriptions to 100 research databases, the library strives to meet the research needs of LCCC students. Students are encouraged to contact the library with any questions regarding how to access materials remotely, how to find quality information resources, and how to correctly cite and use those resources in their assignments.

The Ludden Library houses more than 50,000 books and has access to even more electronic or "eBooks."

Use the search box on the library homepage to search the Ludden Library catalog, WYLDCAT.

With a library card, you can renew books online, search for materials available at other Wyoming libraries and can request items through interlibrary loan through the WYLDCAT system.

Student ID cards serve as a library card for active LCCC students. Community members need to request a library card. If you need help getting a library card or accessing your account online, please contact the Laramie Campus Library Circulation Desk. 

The library has more than 4,000 audiovisual titles available in a variety of formats. In addition, the library has access to downloadable eAudiobooks, classical and jazz music online through NAXOS, and a collection of over 5,000 online, streaming educational videos through Films on Demand.

The library provides online access to more than 100 research databases. The majority of these subscription resources are journal and magazine collections; however, other databases contain reference books, art images, classical music, and educational videos.

For off-campus login and any other questions about the databases, please contact the Laramie Campus Library Circulation Desk at 307.772.4263.

Charges for Lost Items

If a library item is lost or not returned, the patron will be charged for the cost of the item plus an additional processing fee. Processing fees range from $5-$20 based on the item type.

The Laramie Campus Library has 24 public-access computer workstations that patrons are welcome to use whenever the room is not reserved for a class. All computers have Internet access and are installed with Microsoft Office 2010.

The library also provides the following:

  • Black & white printer
  • Color printer
  • Scanner with print capabilities

Students get a print allowance per semester. Community members can set up a print account with the Administration Office located in room #103.

Course reserves are materials an instructor sets aside for a specific course.

Books, videos and CDs are kept behind the Circulation Desk and are available for shortened checkout periods. This allows all students to access needed materials. Articles often can be placed on electronic reserve ("eReserve"). EReserves are accessible directly through the online library catalog from on or off campus.

Course reserves are searchable through the library catalog by course number, course name or instructor's name.
Please note that items on reserve for online courses are physically located in Cheyenne at Ludden Library.

 

Books, articles and other materials that aren't available in the library collection can be obtained from other libraries through the Interlibrary Loan Request Form. If you have questions about this form or have forgotten your PIN, please contact the library for help.

You'll be notified as soon as your materials arrive. Although most items arrive within a week, it may take two or three weeks if an item is difficult to find or shipped from elsewhere in the state. Requests should be made well in advance of the date materials are needed.

For further information on the interlibrary loan process, please contact the Laramie Campus Library Circulation Desk at 307.772.4263.

Tutors are available free of charge for all LCCC students enrolled in one credit hour or more. The Learning Commons at the Laramie Campus is located in room #135 and tutoring subjects cover a range of subjects, including writing, communication, math, accounting, chemistry, and anatomy and physiology. Topics available may vary by semester. 

Appointments can be made through Navigate Student, but walk-ins are always welcome.

Services for Faculty


Information literacy forms the basis of lifelong learning. It is common to all disciplines, to all learning environments, and to all levels of education. It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become self-directed, and assume greater control over their own learning.

Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education
Association of College and Research Libraries, 2000

Information technologies are transforming the traditional tools for research, resulting in an increasingly complex information landscape. Information literacy is the ability to access, evaluate and apply information from a variety of sources and in a variety of contexts. The library faculty is committed to working with departmental faculty to develop the skills inherent in information literacy, and the Laramie Campus librarian would be happy to schedule an instruction session either in your classroom or in the library. Contact Seth Perkins, 307.772.4285 or sperkinsFREELARAMIE.

For assistance with instruction, presentations and written materials geared specifically to your course and assignment, as well as general orientations for more inexperienced students, fill out the Faculty Instruction Request Form and/or contact Seth Perkins at Ludden Library, 307.772.4285 or sperkinsFREELARAMIE.

With a focus on curricular support, the LCCC Ludden Library contains about 60,000 physical items. Additionally, the library website offers access to hundreds of online reference databases, including collections of over 80,000 eBooks, almost 70,000 online periodical titles, 6,000 streaming videos and nearly 100,000 audio recordings.

Staff at the Laramie Campus Library can assist you in requesting materials from Ludden Library that will be delivered to the Laramie Campus Library.

The Laramie Campus Library welcomes recommendations for purchase of print materials that support students' research needs. To request an item for purchase, please contact the Laramie Campus librarian. If you're teaching a new course and your students will need library materials on course topics, the library staff will assist you in identifying and ordering relevant titles. 

Faculty members may place library or personal materials on reserve by visiting the Laramie Campus Library Circulation Desk or calling 307.772.4263. Since it takes time to process materials placed on reserve, a minimum of 24 hours is required. Short articles may be photocopied and placed on reserve in the library. Alternately, items available in one of the library's article databases may be linked to. Whether in paper or electronic format, reserves must comply with copyright law.

Have questions about copyright? You are not alone. Some of the basics are given in our Copyright LibGuide. Your librarian can help you navigate through copyright compliance and provide your students with the materials they need.

Contact Maggie Swanger, 307.778.1283 or mswangerFREELARAMIE.
