Library


The Wallace State Library is housed in a modern, six-story building that provides a wide variety of learning resources for students, faculty, and the community. These resources include books, periodicals, audio-visual equipment, audio-visual aids, materials on DVD and CD-ROM, Alabama Virtual Library database access, and general internet access. The Library has an auditorium with a rear projection screen for viewing video, DVD, CD-ROM, PowerPoint presentations and slides. It also is equipped with digital satellite communications. A qualified and energetic staff assists patrons with their research needs.

The second floor is equipped with 16 computers with internet access and Microsoft office programs (Excel, Access, PowerPoint, Front Page and Publisher). The Library management software is powered by the ATHENA Corporation and is accessible through this web site.

The library has 55,000 circulating and non-circulating items for patron needs. These items cover all subjects that may be discussed in the instructional classroom. It provides approximately 167 periodicals to support the many courses taught to Wallace States students.

The library is also home to the Cullman County Law Library, a collection of approximately 10,000 volumes, located on the third floor. These books are utilized by the WSCC paralegal classes as well as the public. They are, however, non-circulating (in-library use only).

The Family and Regional History program is located on the fifth and sixth floors of the library building. It includes an extensive and growing research collection. The Wallace State College Library was the first non-Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints library allowed to borrow directly from the holdings of the Genealogical Society of Utah, including some three million records and books from around the world. Equipment and assistance are available for the copying of old family photos. Local records of interest are also microfilmed by the college. The Wallace State Library is the place to visit for research in Alabama or the Southeast. Genealogy can be reached by dialing 256-352-8263.
