EVC Library: About Us & Services: About

Evergreen Valley College Library supports teaching and learning by providing you with print and online resources needed to meet your learning and teaching needs. Located on the upper floor of the Library/Educational Technology Building, the Library is an ideal place for research and study with spaces for individual study or collaborative learning. We carry a collection of more than 60,000 books and media, research databases, periodicals, and course reserves. We are here to help you navigate your way through the Library and obtain the information you need.

EVC Library is also home to the Heritage Room, where you can research the local history collection of the Evergreen Valley area.

While students, faculty, and staff are our primary and priority users, the Library is open to everyone in the community.

Mission Statement

Evergreen Valley College Library supports the instructional philosophy and programs of the College. The Library supports the learning needs of a diverse student population, the instructional needs of the faculty, and the information needs of the community. To provide these support services, the Library gives access to recorded knowledge, information and data, and provides training and assistance in the use of recorded knowledge and information.

Library faculty teach information competency/literacy skills, which include the ability to access, retrieve, analyze, evaluate and apply information, and document sources. These skills, essential to lifelong learning, are an investment in student success when transferring to a 4-year college or university or moving into the workplace.​
