Welcome New Faculty and Staff!

We would like to send a warm welcome to all of our new faculty and staff.  It doesn't matter if you're part-time, full-time, or just here for one semester.  Welcome to the RVCC family!  Keep your eyes open for a welcome packet from the library coming soon.  

Products and Services

Did you know that we have over 70,000 books and magazines, thousands of DVDs, and two floors of computers and tech?  We even have dozens of databases full of information that you can't get through Google.  If we don't have it, we can probably get it for you from another source through our interlibrary loan program.  Our friendly faculty and staff are ready and waiting to answer your questions and provide the materials you need to make a difference for your students.  Visit our website to learn more.

Don't Forget to Sign Up for Classes

We teach your students vital information literacy skills as well as a plethora of a la carte options.  We tailor every lesson to your needs, but don't get left behind!  Classes fill up quickly and we want to make sure you are included.

Immigrant Defense Network
The IDN is a working group of the Social Action Collective at Raritan Valley Community College.  We defend our friends, neighbors, co-workers, and ourselves from all forms of attack, including arrest, detention, and deportation.  We struggle for the full freedom and dignity of immigrant students, workers, and community members in New Jersey and throughout the nation. 

Day 1:  Central Jersey Community Coalition
Be an important participant in the launching of the CJCC, a new group that is sponsoring a proactive response to the atmosphere of hate and divisiveness that has engulfed our community.  Participants will have the opportunity to come together in solidarity with other social justice teach-ins and protests planned around the country on Jan. 21. Community members, grassroots organizers, interfaith groups, activists, and educators will learn about pressing local social justice issues and how to take action at the local, state, and national level.

EdTech Tip

Educational technology, often referred to as "EdTech," is the study and practice of using technology, media, and learning theory to enhance instruction. But many EdTech programs can also be used outside of the classroom to improve workflows, and just make daily life more pleasant.

In each issue of Check It Out we will share one new EdTech Tip that you may find useful for yourself or your students.  Recommendations will always be FREE and help
integrating these technologies into your classrooms will be available upon request.
Favro is an online collaboration tool that adapts to how you work, making it easy to plan just about anything with anyone.  It is a FREEmium online program that takes your to-do list to the next level.  Favro can provide autonomy for directors, managers and leaders; empower, align and engage teams; and integrates your favorite apps for power users.  Available on desktop or on your mobile device.  Visit their website for more information:​
It is the purpose of the library newsletter to promote library services and resources to the faculty and staff of the college, to encourage faculty involvement and participation, and to increase library awareness.
