Policy on College Libraries



The purpose of the Hudson County Community College (“College”) Policy on College Libraries is to ensure that students, faculty and staff are provided access to scholarly and popular research materials.


The College and its Board of Trustees (“Board”) are committed to the mission of the Hudson County Community College Library (“Library”), including support for student success through relevant, current, and accessible materials and resources, in print and online.  The Library collects materials for English and non-English speakers with a focus on supporting English as a Second Language (ESL) curricula.  The Library makes these resources available to students, alumni, faculty, staff, and, when available, to Hudson County residents.  The Library supports the intellectual, social, and cultural development of the College through the acquisition of scholarly and popular materials, information literacy instruction, and other programming.  The Board delegates to the President the responsibility to develop procedures and guidelines for the implementation of this policy.
