Library, Tutoring and Academic Support Services

There are three libraries at Atlantic Cape Community College, one on each campus. The Mays Landing campus is the location of the main library, William Spangler Library, which is in D Building. The Atlantic City campus is the home of the Worthington Information Commons, and on the second floor of the Cape May campus is the Mullock Family Library.

The libraries provide students with access to resources that support research and learning at the undergraduate level. The libraries are also the location for in-person tutoring, which is free to all students. (See Tutoring Services section for more information.) The libraries provide a wide range of academic support for students and faculty. Books, articles, and other information resources are available in print and digital formats, and reference librarians provide assistance in identifying the best resources for any research project.

Materials 

Library resources are available to the college community and also to residents of Atlantic and Cape May counties. The book collection includes more than 70,000 books and 250,000 digital books. The library subscribes to magazines in areas of general interest and areas of study. 

Students can check out and return materials, including those from the Atlantic County Library System, the public library, at any of the campus libraries. The Atlantic Cape library card is integrated with the student ID card. Stop by any of the circulation desks with your student ID to activate your library card. 

Books, articles and other materials not owned by the college library can be obtained for students, staff and faculty, free of charge, from libraries throughout the United States, using the library’s interlibrary loan service. Ask about this service at the reference desk or email library@atlantic.edu.

Thousands of full text newspapers, magazines, and scholarly journals are available through our online databases. In addition, we have digital subscriptions to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

Reserve Collection

Each of the campus libraries maintains a reserve collection to support the classes that are taught on that campus. When possible, textbooks supplied by instructors and departments are made available to students for in-library use. Instructors may also place supplemental material in the reserve collection. 

Computers

Students have access to computer workstations with Windows, Mac or dual boot operating system, laptops for in-library use, scanners, printers and photocopiers.

Various assistive technology devices are available.

Study in the Library

The library strives to create a comfortable and inclusive environment where students can work productively. Study rooms are available on a first come basis at the Spangler and Mullock libraries. Library classes and students with academic work are given priority for computer use when the demand for workstations is high. 

Students are asked to help us to keep the libraries clean, comfortable, and inviting. Covered beverage containers are allowed in designated areas, but should be kept away from library computers and books. Food is limited to small snacks. 

Tutoring  

Tutoring is available to all current Atlantic Cape students, free of charge.  Atlantic Cape offers a variety of tutoring services.  Nearly all subject areas are covered; hours and availability vary.  On-campus tutoring, when available, is offered in designated spaces in the libraries.  Online, remote tutoring is available live by chat, interactive whiteboards and live meetings, and asynchronously by sending in papers for review, or by submitting subject-specific questions to tutoring staff. 

Some courses are assigned a designated tutor, accessible only to students enrolled in that course, through Blackboard.

Options for the different formats of tutoring services vary depending on a student’s individual needs and circumstances.  Students should email tutoring@atlantic.edu for more information or to make a request tutoring assistance.
