Returning Library Materials

If you need to return library materials, the Hardin Valley book drop is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week and is located to the right of the ERC building entrance. If the book drop is full, please contact campus police for assistance by calling 865.694.6646. Library materials returned to the book drop will be scanned in as returned once a week and will automatically generate a return confirmation that will be sent to the borrower's PSCC email address. Returns will not be processed when the college is closed 12/19-1/3 for the holidays.  If you have questions, please Ask a Librarian.

Study Spaces

Study spaces are available at the tables outside the Testing Center and on the second floor of the ERC. For safety reasons, all group study rooms will be closed.
