ESCC Mountain Scenery

Learning Resource Center

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


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.

Other Area Libraries

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