The CPCC Libraries are pleased to announce that CPCC faculty, students,
and staff now have access to the electronic version of Resources for
College Libraries (RCL), an exciting new collection development tool.
RCL provides a core list of titles (print and electronic) recommended
for college libraries serving undergraduates. The core list features
65,000 titles in 58 curriculum-specific subjects. Titles have been
selected for academic libraries by more than 300 subject specialists and
bibliographers, and reviewed by outside, independent referees. Titles
were also selected to reflect today's undergraduate curriculum.


The CPCC Libraries will be using RCL to strengthen and improve the
library's collection. The Collection Development liaisons for subject
areas and programs will be creating lists to share with faculty for
potential purchase. We would also love to have you share with us! If you
would like to share a list or title with your liaison, just click the
"Add to List" button and follow the simple directions. Once you've
created a list, you can email it to your liaison. To find the liaison
for your area, click here

You can browse by subject or Library of Congress Classification, or
search by keyword, title, author, or ISBN. The information provided on
each title includes the publication information, audience level,
subjects, and reviews and synopses when available. To start searching,
click here <http://rclweb.net/> .  RCL can also be found in the
library's alphabetical listing of databases.


Stay tuned for more details on the libraries' efforts to improve the
materials available for students, faculty, and staff.


RCL is a combined effort of the Association of College and Research
Libraries and their journal Choice and R.R. Bowker, publisher of Books
in Print. If you have any questions regarding RCL, please contact
