About Us

Guidelines & Procedures

The Learning Commons welcome all current students, staff, and faculty as well as community users (Marple Campus only) during open hours. Community users may read print materials in-house but may not check out materials.

ID Requirement

A current DCCC ID Card is required to use materials from the Learning Commons. You may also use our ID card for swipe access to the Learning Commons printers, an easier and faster way to obtain your prints than typing in your delaGate user name and password.

You can obtain your ID card and the current semester's sticker at Marple at Enrollment Central (room 3500, Founder's Hall) or at a branch campus Learning Commons.
