To promote information literacy, the libraries at the two campuses of Anoka-Ramsey Community College provide services and resources (print, audiovisual, and online), including bibliographic instruction, reference and interlibrary loan, to ARCC students, faculty and staff. Since the libraries are an integral part of the education process, the collection in each library is coordinated with college curriculum to ensure students have resources relevant to their course of study. Campus libraries may also choose to contract with the local public library for reciprocal borrowing to promote community cooperation and support.
The libraries will acquire materials in a variety of formats to support the curriculum, adhering to the American Library Association’s Intellectual Freedom Principles for Academic Libraries.
