Cerro Coso Community College

ESCC Mountain Scenery

Learning Resource Center

The Learning Resource Center (LRC) is located inside the Mammoth Lakes campus, in room 225.

Library

While Mammoth students have access to the Mammoth Lakes library collection and resources, the Cerro Coso Library Main page is a resource portal that contains links to a variety of encyclopedia and magazine research databases, web resources, and our automated book catalog, all of which can be accessed remotely (including from home computers) after inputting student ID #.

Students are encouraged to use the "24/7 Chat" link on the Library Main page for research assistance. This resource instantly connects users to a skilled research specialist any time of the day or night.

To schedule a Library Orientation/Research Instruction presentation, faculty should contact College Librarian, Julie Cornett at (760) 384-6132 or email jcornett@cerrocoso.edu. She can visit classes on either campus and teach students the Information Competency skills crucial to academic success and lifelong learning.

Other Area Libraries

Mammoth students have full access to library resources at the Mammoth Lakes Public Library.

Learning Assistance Center

ESCC LRC Adjunct Faculty member, Leigh Duggan, can assist with tutoring needs in all subjects. In addition, she gives workshops and presentations each semester on skills for college success. Workshops are free to all Cerro Coso students.

Faculty are encouraged to bring classes to workshops and, if desired, they may contact Leigh to schedule in-class presentations. She can be reached at leigh.duggan@cerrocoso.edu, or also at (760) 872-5322.
