The J. Ardis Bell Library on the Northeast Campus is committed to continue our service to the public. The library is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. until further notice. All TCCD libraries are working together to support the continuity of learning by providing assistance in several ways besides physical presence in the library.

IMPORTANT! Action Required: Changes to Your Free Personal Microsoft Office Account with myTCC
Tarrant County College (TCC) is working to make your login experience faster and easier. Over the last few months, we’ve been gearing up to launch One Login, TCC’s Single-Sign-On project. To support this effort, we are required to make changes to myTCC that will temporarily impact your free personal use of Microsoft Office.
What is a myTCC Personal Use Account?
- Microsoft Office (MS) 365 is available via your my.tccd.edu email account for personal devices and MS Office 365 online.
- This subscription includes products such as OneDrive, Sharepoint, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Effective May 25th, you will no longer have access to your current personal use Microsoft Office account through myTCC.
- In preparation for required updates, move any documents you have stored in your online MS Office 365 account to an alternate location prior to May 24th.
- All documents and data associated with your myTCC personal use Microsoft Office account will no longer be available as of May 25th.
- Prior to May 24th, take the steps necessary to download any files and/or data associated with your myTCC personal use Microsoft Office account.
- After May 28th, you will have the ability to create a new personal use Microsoft Office account with your same myTCC username and password where you will have the opportunity to re-upload documents and more. Information Technology will send instructions for how to create a new personal use Microsoft Office account.
We sincerely apologize for this temporary inconvenience due to upcoming enhancements. We look forward to offering you a new single-sign-on experience with TCC in the coming months and will send additional reminders as we get closer to this change. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please submit them via email to One-Login@tccd.edu.
Remember! All documents and data associated with your current personal use Microsoft Office account with myTCC will be deleted and no longer available as of May 25th.

CALLING ALL TCC STUDENTS!
On Monday, March 26, 2018, the J. Ardis Bell Library on Northeast Campus will be hosting two back-to-back events, where our TCC Students have the opportunity to make their voices heard. We hope that anyone who can attend will come and share their ideas, input, and opinions. We hope you will join us!
PRESIDENTIAL TOWN HALL
First, from 9:30-10:30 AM, Dr. Allen Goben, the NE Campus President, will be hosting a “Presidential Town Hall Meeting.” This is the second semester when such an event has taken place, and is being co-sponsored by the President‘s Office, the Student Government Association, and the NE Campus chapter of Phi Theta Kappa. Students are invited to submit their discussion questions in advance by emailing them to NE.email@example.com, or via social media by using the hashtag #tccyourvoicematters.
Students who plan to attend the Town Hall meeting are asked to RSVP online at evite.me/hJdnyqa4QZ.
Registration is encouraged, but not required to attend. Walk-ins are still welcome to join these important conversations.
If you have questions or would like more information about this Town Hall event, please contact either of the following student representatives:
- Miguel Madrigal, Vice President of Service for the Phi Tau chapter of Phi Theta Kappa. firstname.lastname@example.org
- Berkley Breaux, Vice President of the NE Campus Student Government Association. email@example.com
STUDENT FOCUS GROUP RE: LEARNING COMMONS
Just after the Town Hall meeting concludes, Fred Schmidt from the NE President’s Office and other members of the TCC Learning Commons Advisory Panel will be presenting a “Student Focus Group” to discuss upcoming changes to the TCC Libraries and Learning Labs and solicit feedback directly from YOU – the students. The upcoming “Learning Commons” service model will help all TCC Libraries and on-campus Learning Labs combine their resources and spaces to offer a wide variety of academic services to the student body in a “one-stop shop” of learning support and achievement.
This will be a come-and-go session, between 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM on the lower level of the Library. Refreshments will be provided free for all attendees.
Your input and ideas are needed to make this transition a success! If you have questions or would like more information on this Focus Group event, contact Fred Schmidt, Assistant to the NE Campus President, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see you there, making your voice heard!

As many of you are already undoubtedly aware, the Texas state legislation commonly known as “Campus Carry” took effect at all public, state-funded 4-year colleges and universities in Texas on August 1st, 2016. Now, one year later, the law (SB_11 from the 84th state legislative session in 2015) is expanding to all Texas community colleges, including TCC, effective on Tuesday, August 1st, 2017.
Opinions on the new law are as diverse and varied as our student population… Feedback from survey data has shown a broad range of responses from the public, as well as students, faculty, and staff from the many public colleges in our state. Many proponents of “Campus Carry” support it in favor of the individual’s right to defend themselves no matter where they are, while others claim that weapons have no place in the learning environment.
In the months surrounding the bill’s enactment last year, the University of Texas at Austin was the site of several well-publicized protests by students who were opposed to the bill, as well as a faculty lawsuit, appealing directly to the court system, on the basis that the law was unconstitutionally “barring free speech” in the classroom environment.
Nearly a dozen states in our country have active “Campus Carry” legislation, and others are considering bills this year. Luckily, the reports all show that – after a full year since it was enacted – there have been no “Campus Carry” related incidents reported anywhere in the State of Texas.
Tarrant County College officials have spent months developing our new policies to address the question of “Campus Carry.” For anyone wanting to know more, the college website has all the official regulations spelled out. There is also a helpful FAQ page, provided by the TCC Police Dept. Some of the highlights are:
- Anyone carrying a weapon on campus must be at least 21 years old, and must have a legal License to Carry (LTC) permit.
- An LTC holder who is carrying a weapon on campus must keep it concealed at all times. Visible weapons (“open carry”) are not allowed.
- TCC does not currently provide LTC training, and there are no gun lockers or secure storage spaces provided on any campus.
- Anyone is permitted to ask if you are carrying a weapon… but a LTC holder is not required to answer, unless asked by a Police officer.
- There are “Gun Free Zones” on each campus, where weapons are strictly prohibited. Online campus maps show where these areas are located.
- On Northeast Campus, “Gun Free Zones” include (but are not limited to) the Testing Center, Counseling Dept., NHPE / Gym, and the Child Care Center. For a more complete list, click HERE.
If you are interested in learning more on the history, implementation, protests, etc., surrounding “Campus Carry,” visit our databases at the Library’s website: library.tccd.edu. They are available to you anywhere, 24 hours a day, just by logging in with your current student credentials (WebAdvisor ID & password). For further assistance, Ask A Librarian and we’ll be glad to help you find what you need.
Enjoy the rest of your summer break, and we’ll see you in the library this fall!
