CCH Learning Resource System & Industry Library

Columbia College Hollywood has two libraries: a physical (“brick and mortar”) library with more than 3,000 volumes and films on DVD and BluRay, and a virtual library with over 30,000 eBooks and numerous databases.

The 5,000 square-foot facility houses a rapidly-growing collection of thousands of books not just on film, television and related arts, but great literature as well as popular fiction in all genres. In addition, we have hundreds of films, documentaries and television programs on DVD, as well as from downloadable cloud services. We also have the ability to order any film needed for research and have it delivered no later than the next day.
