Library Services

 

 

Our mission:  Hinds Libraries (Learning Resource Centers) acquire, organize, preserve and make available the best and most appropriate resources, in all formats, needed to support the instructional goals of the College and its faculty in order to foster greater learning opportunities for students and community users.  In addition, Hinds LRCs provide courteous assistance and professional instruction to its community in the location and use of informational resources. The LRCs staff strive to maintain a welcoming, comfortable and technologically supportive environment that facilitates reading, learning, collaboration and ease of use.

 

The library supports and adheres to the Library Bill of Rights as adopted by the American Library Association.

 

Hinds Community College Learning Resource Centers support the institutional mission not only by providing resources, but also by providing instruction in finding and using resources. Librarians are ready to assist you not only within the library, but also by presenting a customized instruction session for your class. This instruction session can be tailored to a specific assignment or to a specific subject.

Request an instructional session for your class:  Bibliographic Instruction Session Request

After the session, please take the Instruction Survey so that we will know how we are doing and how we can improve our instruction.

If you have any further questions, please call the Reference Desk at 601-857-3378 or e-mail at lrcraymondcirculation@hindscc.edu, or contact the Administrative Librarian for your campus Learning Resource Center.

Hinds Community College Raymond Library supports the institutional mission of the college not only by providing resources, but also by providing meeting spaces needed by Hinds Community College classes, groups, staff and instructors.  The John Bell Williams Alumni room in the Raymond Library is one such space and can be used for a variety of occasions such as meetings, workshops, interviews, or receptions.  It has a Smartboard, movable tables and chairs seating 30 and laptops that can be reserved for use as well.
