Library Collections

The majority of the Libraries’ collections are online and include: e-books, audio books, e-journals, images, streaming video, films, newspapers, magazines, reference materials, and bibliographic databases. Search the collections using OneSearch: https://pstcc-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo-explore/search?vid=01PSCC_default&lang=en_US&sortby=rank

Off campus access to the Libraries' e-resources has been restored. You now have access to our electronic collections from on and off campus with the exception of LinkedIn Learning and eHRAF Archaeology.

Print and DVD collections are available at all libraries.
