Freedom Summer Movie Screening, February 11

“Created Equal” is part of the Bridging Cultures initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), produced in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History to encourage public conversations about the changing meanings of freedom and equality in America.

To support this endeavor, the CPCC Library is sponsoring a showing of “Freedom Summer.” This film is supported by NEH, and tells the remarkable story of individuals who challenged the social and legal status quo of deeply rooted institutions.

 ”Freedom Summer”
Introduction by Dr. Adolphus Belk, Winthrop University
Wednesday, February 11, 2015; 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

Welcome to the 2015 Spring Semester!

Welcome to the 2015 spring semester!  Hopefully, you had a great winter break and are ready to get into the swing of things.  With the beginning of a new semester, we’d just like to take some time to remind you of a few of the services that the library has to offer, as well as highlight a few recent changes.

Books and More!

As always, the library wants to help out with your research and educational needs.  To that end, we provide access to a wide variety of resources, both in print and online.

To find out what books or DVDs are available in the library (or in electronic format), check out the online library catalog.

If you are looking for research articles or educational online videos, have a look at our Research Resources. Please note that this page was previously known as Research Databases. In addition to having a new name, it also has a new, cleaner look.

Need help using either one of these resources?  Don’t be afraid to Ask a Librarian!  Library staff are available to help in person, over the phone or online.

Study Space?  We Have That!

Need a quiet place to study?  All CPCC campus libraries have dedicated quite study spaces.  Additionally, Central, Cato and Levine campuses have study rooms available. You can book these study rooms yourself online. Book early though, as they tend to fill up pretty quickly!

Faculty Resources

We also offer a number of resources just for faculty.  Be sure to check out our Faculty Resources page to see what we can offer you.

We hope everyone has a great semester!
