What is the Catalog?

Your catalog provides access to the STCC library's collection of:

  • books,
  • audiovisual materials (cds, dvds, vhs, etc.)
  • reference books, and
  • e-materials.

Additionally, we are able to borrow material from over 100 libraries through the C/W MARS (Central/Western Massachusetts Automated Resource Sharing) system. This means that if we don't have an item you want, check other libraries (see instructions in left side bar) and the item will be shipped here within approximately 4 business days, no charge to you!

Video: Save our History - Voices of Civil Rights

Patrons of the STCC library now have access to Films on Demand (on campus | off campus), a database of streaming videos that includes hundreds of educational films in dozens of academic disciplines, including many related to art, architecture and photography.

Just one of the many videos in the collection is Save our History: Voices of Civil Rights, an archive of oral histories of the Civil Rights Movement. The video can be accessed from the STCC campus without logging in, but in order to access the video from off campus, you must have first created an account in Films on Demand, and then log in below using your user ID or email and your password.
