Library Instruction

Bibliographic Instruction Room

The Bibliographic Instruction Room is located on the First Floor of the Estelle M. Black Library and contains 24 workstations. It is an electronic classroom and training facility for Rock Valley College students, faculty and staff.

Each workstation in the Bibliographic Instruction Room offers access to Voyager, the Library's online public access catalog and to the Internet.

When the classroom is not in use for a bibliographic instruction class or training session, other Rock Valley College personnel may use it on a first come, first serve basis. For scheduling information, contact:
