We welcome each student and encourage all our students in their academic pursuits. The Educational Resources Center on the Blount County campus consists of the Library, Academic Support Center, Testing Center, and Research Computer Lab. The Blount County library collection consists of 1000+ circulating titles as well as as supporting materials for the Nursing program.

Intercampus Loan Requests. You have access to 78,000+ circulating titles, 100,000+ ebooks, 200 periodicals and 100+ full-text databases. If the item you need is not located in the Blount County ERC, you may request it from the holding library at one of the other Pellissippi State campuses. Simply print out the title record from the Online Catalog and bring it and your library card to the circulation desk. Within 48 hours, your book will arrive through campus mail and can be picked up at the Blount County ERC circulation desk.

The Research Computer Lab consists of sixteen computers which are available for you to access the internet and our full-text databases. Our computers are loaded with software that allow you to do document processing.

We make Pellissippi State Photo ID's! Your photo ID is also your library card and gives you access to the Learning Commons, Testing Center, Academic Support Center, and Fitness Room. All students, faculty and staff are required to have a valid PSCC ID in order to request or check out materials. You can get your ID in the ERC. Your first card is free, but there is a $10 replacement fee. If you lose your ID, please pay at the Business Office and bring the receipt to the Blount County ERC.
