In collaboration with the VGCC Professional Development Office, the Main Campus library houses a dedicated and growing collection covering a wide range of subjects of interest to college faculty and staff. From student assessment and engagement to employee leadership and conflict management, the print collection serves as a great starting point for self-directed professional deveopment.

Most books in the collection can be checked out by anyone with a valid VGCC Library Card. Some books are labelled "Staff/Faculty Only" and can only be checked out by VGCC employees. Please bring your employee ID with you to check out  materials from the library.
