Default Meaning of VCC?

Does this stand for a single rail supply? My schematic shows multiple grounds and a + and + VCC do i use a dual rail supply on this or a single and ground the -VCC with the other grounds?

VCC always stands for the positive power rails. Often, it is the most important rails. Other voltages are then denoted with their voltage or, in your case, simply with "+".

VEE is the negative power rails, and VDD is the common rails. The latter one is not to be mistaken with the ground (but often is connected to it). Then there also can be signal grounds, and digital grounds. These two are ony connected at one point in the schematic. Often near the Power entry.

More Power Igor! More Power!

I always thought Vcc and Vee were collector and emitter supply rails, and Vdd and Vss were drain and source supply rails. Not certain though. Anyone else?

Circlotron, you are correct. Purely a matter of convention.
