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 ACC 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.

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 ACC 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.

Faculty members may place library or personal materials on reserve by visiting the ACC 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.
