SLCC Automotive Repairs

Click to enlarge.

Attention: SLCC Students, staff and faculty!

Many SLCC automotive programs need vehicles to work on in these areas:
  • 30 point inspections
  • Oil changes
  • Tire rotation
  • Engine repair
  • Brake systems repair
  • Automatic and transmission repairs
  • Air conditioning repair
  • Electrical troubleshooting & repair
  • Suspension & steering system repair
  • Auto-body repair and painting (on a very limited basis)
Please be advised that any repairs are done at the discretion of the instructors due to the subject areas they are teaching. 

Because we are using your vehicles for training purposes, we offer members of the College discounts on parts and labor. Parts are at our cost plus 15% and the service fee is $20 per hour based on industry time standards (if the industry assigns an hour for a repair, that's all you're charged for, regardless of how much time it takes the student). We can also offer these services to non-college personnel on a limited basis with parts at costs plus 25% and service fee of $30 per hour.

If you are interested, or have any questions, call:
Rachel at 801.957-5346 or 801.957.4329 between 8:00 am and 2:00 pm.

Encyclopedia Britannica Academic Edition


It used to be, not long ago you could walk into our SLCC libraries, stroll to the reference section, and locate a multi-volume encyclopedia set on the shelves to help you with your research needs.  Well, nowadays the volume of traditional print content in our libraries has drastically shrunk while the volume of electronically-accessed content has zoomed upward.  From time to time we will blog about some of our SLCC libraries’ great electronic resources that may be accessed by anyone with an SLCC library card and a computer.  Today we’ll talk about our Encyclopedia Britannica Academic Edition.

Reviewers for Library Journal selected the Britannica database as “Most Elegant” in their “Best Databases 2011” reviews, calling the interface “clear” and “visually appealing.”  In addition, they lauded its “excellent search functionality.”

Click to enlarge.
It’s easy to access this resource just by visiting our SLCC library website’s alphabetical database listings, here.  From there, scroll down to Encyclopedia Britannica Academic Edition and click on the title link.  Here, once you log in with your SLCC ID and PIN numbers, you will be able to access the full content of this resource.

From the Britannica front page, you will be able to utilize many features of this dynamic, continuously updated online encyclopedia.  Having up-to-date content is a huge advantage over the static, print versions of encyclopedias that used to be common in library reference areas.  But there are other advantages, too, including tools that are interactive and integrated within this resource.

Some of the main features are:  a daily updated blog, a section called “More Editor’s Picks and Blog Posts,” demo tutorial videos, a section called “Browse Feature,” broken down into several categories I will mention in a bit, a “Research Tools” section, and a handy link to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.  One of the recent blog posts from this site is called “Less Than Medal-Worthy:  Oddity in the Olympics.”  Not only are the blog posts often relevant to current events, but they are often informative and amusing at the same time.

Within the “Browse Feature” area that is also found on the Britannica home page are categories arranged alphabetically that may be browse-searched within each.  They include: 
·       A-Z
·       Biographies
·       Contributors
·       E-books & Primary Sources
·       Extended Play Videos
·       Magazines
·       Media Collection
·       Quotations
·       Subjects

Another helpful section is “Research Tools,” also on the Britannica home page with its own categories.  These are: 
·       Compare Countries
·       This Day in History
·       Timelines
·        World Atlas  
·       World Data Analyst 

World Data Analyst even has a widget allowing you to select countries of the world and to create comparison tables and charts on all sorts of statistical variables.  How nifty is that?  This would be a great way to give your assignments the visual pop and relevancy that will take them to the next level.

This hints at a mere tip of the iceberg of some of the features of our Encyclopedia Britannica Academic Edition resource.  The next step is all yours – to go visit this website, explore, and see just how it can enhance your life!

The launch will highlight the Solar PV training yard and classroom space, and will feature student and faculty-led abbreviated labs and solar panel demonstrations.

Deborah Buterbaugh, Energy Project Specialist from the U.S. Department of Energy will be attending the launch. Buterbaugh is the representative for two previously awarded grants that the College has received for a total of $2.1 million. Salt Lake Community College was selected as one of only a dozen sites nationally to visit, to see how the College has developed innovative green energy training programs.

The PV training yard is a resource for industry professionals and prospective technicians looking to accelerate their knowledge and skills through hands-on training and curriculum provided by North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP)certified instructors.

SLCC Wins 2012 Most Valuable Recycling Award

Salt Lake Community College has received the first-ever Utah Most Valuable Recycling Program award from the Recycling Coalition of Utah. Like the Stanley Cup, the Utah MVP award is a traveling trophy that is issued yearly. Unlike the Stanley Cup, this award is made from recycled materials.

SLCC received the award for its participation in the international RecycleMania campaign.



“This award speaks to the significant efforts undertaken to be ever more sustainable at Salt Lake Community College,” said SLCC recycling supervisor Troy Walker. “Winning this shows that we are one of the top recycling institutions in Utah and in the region. This recognition will only help us as we prepare to participate in RecycleMania again next year.”

RecycleMania is a national competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. To participate, colleges are ranked on the amount of recycling and trash collected each week over an eight-week period and are ranked according to per-capita recycling, recycling rate as a percentage of total waste and on generating the least amount of waste.

The College participates in RecycleMania because the program motivates students and staff to increase recycling efforts and reduce waste generation, to generate attention and support for campus recycling programs, and allows the institution to improve its recycling efforts by measuring and benchmarking recycling activity.

The College currently recycles at all 13 locations. 1,264 recycling bins are used everyday at SLCC campuses. The College has even expanded its recycling efforts to Cate Field and the Bruin Softball field—where coaches for the top-ranked programs are looking into discovering novel ways to recycle intercollegiate eligibility for their respective athletes.

For more information, visit SLCC’s recycling page:http://vvww.slcc.edu/facilities/recycling.aspx
