Did You Know?

  • MCC students carry computers in their pockets. As of May 2017, 16.6% of visits to the MCC Library website are from mobile devices, predominantly phones.
  • 90% of MCC Library resources are electronic. Our print collection is small by comparison. We have 17,000 books but 150,000 ebooks!

  • The MCC Library is the largest campus employer of work-study students. They help us keep a services desk open 60+ hours per week.

Learning Commons

The MCC Learning Commons is a collaboration among the following:

Together, the departments support students' learning by providing access to various learning technologies, expert research assistance, print and online research resources, IT help, writing and tutoring help, and multiple study spaces for individual and group learners.

The space, resources, and services in a common area promote an active and collaborative learning environment.
