Magazines have their own section at Harris Teeter and the entire store perimeter at some book stores (if you can find one that’s still open), but where are the magazines in CPCC Libraries? Each campus library has its own section of magazines and journals specific to programs at that campus.  Harper campus has graphic design journals like HOW and Print, also construction magazines like Custom Home and Welding Journal.  Come take a look!  *these items cannot leave the library, but can be photocopied or scanned.*

Fall 2012 semester is fast approaching, and you may notice some different signage around the library. Signage with maze-like codes. We encourage you to take out your web-enabled device and scan it. You’ll need to download a barcode scanner app to access the information – and it automatically saves in your device to be accessed anytime! CPCC Libraries have created QR codes that link to informative library resources – check them out!
