Citing & avoiding plagiarism

Textbooks and OERs

Students, see which textbooks we have for in-library use, and search our catalog for older editions.

Also, see whether we have your course materials, search eBooks or use the MCC OneSearch box on this page to find articles. If your course is using open educational resources (OERs), there should be a link or readings in your Canvas course. If you need help, ask us! Want to know more about OERs? Visit the Open Textbook Alliance.

Faculty, consult the MCC Library's Open Educational Resources (OERs) toolkit to learn how to adopt/adapt OERs instead of expensive textbooks.

MCC COVID-19 Memory Project

The COVID-19 pandemic is a life-changing event for all members of the Manchester Community College community and for the institution itself. Researchers now and in the future will want to know how we responded, what we thought, and what we did during this time. To help the MCC Library preserve this history, we are inviting the MCC Community to share their reflections on COVID-19’s impact.
