The Holyoke Community College Library provides students with the resources to support their classroom work and to expand their education into their daily living and working situations.
Located in the center of the campus, the Library contains over 75,000 books, over 150 periodicals, and 7,000 audiovisual items, including a growing video collection. The 6,800-volume reference collection includes encyclopedias, dictionaries, directories, handbooks, bibliographies and other reference materials. The on-line catalog and over 100 on-line databases, providing access to periodicals and newspapers both in the library and from remote sites, make the HCC Library a true electronic library.
Holyoke Community College is a participating member of C/W MARS (Central/Western Massachusetts Automated Resource Sharing network), which expands the resources of the HCC Library by providing on-line access to the collections of over 140 academic and public libraries. Students at HCC may borrow from all C/W MARS libraries.
