The Shelby Rotary Club Center for Global Studies is an instructional classroom with 38 laptops for student use. Instructors can request to use this space by filling out the Center for Global Studies Request form found below. Requests for curriculum and continuing education classes will be given priority.  Walk-ins are welcome if the room is not in use, but during fall and spring terms we are busy.  We recommend that faculty and staff use the form to reserve the room in advance.

Collection Development

The Jim and Patsy Rose Library is a multimedia facility designed to support teaching and learning at Cleveland Community College, as well as the needs of the administration, staff, and community patrons of the college.

Collection development criteria are designed to enhance the capacity of the library to meet this goal. These criteria are outlined in the Collection Development Manual.

Because faculty members have the most direct involvement with the teaching program, it is particularly desirable that they take responsibility for selecting materials in their respective fields. Faculty members are encouraged to submit requests and may do so by completing a book order form in the library or by using the Request for Materials Purchase Online Form . You may also contact the Collection Development Librarian. Include your name, department, and as much information as you have on the item you want to request. It is also helpful to know which course you are ordering the material to support.

If you are interested in finding materials appropriate for the collection, you can search any of our academic databases for book reviews. If you are on-campus, our periodicals section on the second level of the library is also of interest. Print journals in most subjects include reviews of new books in that discipline. In addition, we subscribe to several useful online databases. The library also receives catalogs from publishers and distributors. Subject-specific catalogs are often provided to faculty in that field, who may then indicate their suggestions for items worth consideration.


The Rose Library has a special area behind the circulation desk where we can place materials on reserve for your students. Use the Faculty Reserves Request Form to place materials on reserve. You can email the Library with any questions or concerns.


We want to know your assignments! If you are asking your students to find a specific resource, send us a list of titles or information about the project. This will ensure that we have the materials you need, and help us to fill student requests more efficiently.

Course Development

Similarly, if you are developing a new course or assignment, you can schedule an appointment with Emily Von Pfahl so that she can order titles specific to your course before it begins.
