The Estelle M. Black Library at Rock Valley College features nearly 75,000 volumes and more than 650 periodicals, and access to the interlibrary loan system. It also features spaces for individual and group study, and if you get thirsty, there's a coffee shop in the lobby!

The Secure Authentication and Access method is preferred and requires one-time setup on your wireless device. It uses WPA2 Enterprise security and therefore does not require you to manually supply login credentials on a daily basis.
RVC-Easy-Web-Internet is a temporary and easy way to get Internet access and requires you to use your web browser to authenticate. It is an unsecured, but authenticated method for accessing the Internet.
If you are an employee and have an Apple iOS device, we have several enabled locations which allow you to 'mirror' your device output to the workstation and onto the projector, using RVC's wi-fi. These instructions are subject to change as we roll out more areas which are enabled for mirroring.
Test Video FilesThese video files are local at RVC and will help you test if your wi-fi connection is working OK or not. If these local RVC videos play OK, but other Internet-based videos do not, then the problem is due to delays related to Internet services or remote website congestion.
