Learning Commons Library (LC)
The Library supports teaching and learning through its print and online collections, interlibrary loan services, and reference and instruction services. College students and employees automatically have library accounts, so they can check out items from the library and access library digital resources anytime/anywhere using their Sauk ID and password. Any resident of the College district who is at least 16 years old may apply for a free library card and check out items from the library. They can also access library digital resources on campus using a guest ID.
Learning Commons Writing Center
The Learning Commons Writing Center offers feedback on all aspects of student writing from brainstorming to final edits. We can offer suggestions on written assignments from all academic departments, as well as all personal writing such as scholarship essays, cover letters, and resumes. Our services are free and available to all Sauk students, including dual credit students. There are no limits on how often a student may use the Writing Center. Consultations are either in-person or online and are offered in 30- or 60-minute increments. Appointments are encouraged, and required for online consultations, but walk-ins are also welcome.
