Francis U. and Mary F. Ritz Library

Welcome to the Francis U. and Mary F. Ritz Library, your academic resource center, dedicated to providing vital services to our college community!

The Library's collection is comprised of electronic journals and newspapers, e-books and streaming media available on and off campus 24 hours a day, as well as traditional books and media that support the wide range of programs offered by DCC. Librarians are available to provide assistance and answer questions, support information literacy initiatives through orientation sessions in the classroom, and create online research guides to streamline access for classes and assignments.

We have ample study space for individuals and groups, as well as computers, printers and copiers. A reference librarian is available during all hours that the library is open to assist you with your research, and we are pleased to offer AskUs 24/7, providing reference assistance online at any hour.

For questions about specific services that we offer, please call the Reference Department at (845) 431-8634.
