Welcome to the William M. Brish Library
at Hagerstown Community College!


Mission Statement

The William M. Brish Library is committed to utilizing the latest technology to provide services and resources, both on and off campus, to meet the academic and professional needs of all members of the college community. The library subscribes to a variety of electronic resources and offers a strong core collection of physical materials that fully supports the college’s programs and curriculum. In support of student retention, librarians work to empower students to successfully locate and evaluate scholarly information by providing individual and group instruction, as well as point-of-need reference assistance. The library maintains a calm, welcoming environment that fosters student success.


The Brish Library is on the second floor of the Learning Resource Center (LRC) building. The LRC is a three-story building located between the Student Center and the Administration building. It has a clock on the outside of the building facing the parking lot. When arriving on campus via the main entrance off Robinwood Drive, the LRC is located to the left.

Visitor parking for the library is available in lots B and P. Students may use lots C (after 5 pm), D, EL, or P. Handicapped parking is available directly outside the LRC in Lot A.
