Welcome to STCC Library's 'Tech2Go!'
In 2016, the library began a program to support the STCC community with Internet and computer access. The library lends Chromebooks, Mobile Wifi hotspots, and Dell laptops to students with a valid Ram Card. These units will circulate for a limited time allowing access to both the equipment and the Internet necessary to conduct research, complete assignments, and take exams wherever and whenever needed.
In mid-September 2016, the STCC Library learned that it was one of sixteen recipients of an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Sparks! Ignition Grant for Libraries. In June 2016, the Library and STCC’s Grants Office drafted a proposal for a Chromebook and Wifi Hotspot Loan program, the idea for which grew out of student need for computers and internet connectivity outside of campus in order to complete college assignments. The money received from the IMLS grant was used to purchase 20 Chromebooks and 20 wifi hotspots. The loan program was launched in Spring Semester 2017.
