Library Services


Need help with a research project? Schedule a 20-minute one-on-one appointment with a librarian to get individualized help finding credible resources for research papers/projects.

Textbooks are available for four-hour checkout at both the Lakewood and Arvada campuses. At Lakewood, ask at the main desk in the library. At Arvada, please see the Lab Coordinator. Search to see if your textbook is available.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are no longer checking out study rooms. However, if you have extenuating circumstances (i.e. You have a remote class that meets immediately after a hybrid class.), please email Karen Neville at

Laptops and graphing calculators can be checked out for up to four hours with your student ID at both campuses. We also have semester-long checkouts. Please, email Karen Neville at

In partnership with the Colorado Devision of Parks and Wildlife, Red Rocks Library participates in the Check Out State Parks program. This program allows students, staff, and faculty at Red Rocks to check out a pass that gives you free admission to all 41 Colorado state parks. For more information, please inquire at the Library Access Desk or call (303)914-6740.

Library instruction: It’s not just for English 121!

Weary of low-quality student research? Do you KNOW in your teacher’s heart that it could be better? We can help! If you require your students to complete a research project, we can design a custom library instruction session for them. Sessions are available online via Zoom. We can also create pre-recorded tutorials for your students on a variety of research topics.
