Use this guide to learn about CCAC Library services that can support faculty.

Course Guides

Created at your request, Course Guides are customized online research guides to relevant library resources for your course, accessible via the library website.  For examples, see:

Media Services

Each campus has a full Media Services department to support your classroom audio-visual needs. Media Service needs can be requested through the Service Desk, 412.237.8700, or via email at

Library Resources & Blackboard

Today, it seems, that most all classes have a Blackboard component, traditional and distance learning alike. In an effort to meet our students and faculty where they are, CCAC library has worked with the Distance Learning staff to get subject specific resource guides into your Blackboard courses.

Each Library Subject Guide will give your students access to the most relevant library databases, topical websites that provide quality information, citation guides, easy access to the library books and ebooks.


Copyright Resources

When copying materials to put on Reserves or to distribute to students, electronically or in class, copyright laws must be followed. While Library staff cannot interpret copyright law, we can direct you to some helpful sources.
