The MCC Library is a central part of the student experience at MCC. The library offers welcoming spaces for students to congregate between classes, get research help from librarians, borrow laptops, print out assignments and work with peer tutors in the Academic Success Center.
This website is the online library--available 24/7. Its databases, eBooks and research guides provide credible sources for students' research projects and papers. Please explore!
We welcome suggestions from faculty and students. Please use the email form in the "Contact Us" box to share your feedback or questions or ask about an item you'd like us to add to our collections.
The MCC Library has created online research guides that organize library and external resources by subject. If you are interested in having the library create a guide or if you have information to add to an existing guide, contact a librarian.
We also have a series of guides designed to introduce students to using the library and doing research. Please encourage your students to use these, and feel free to link to any of our guides in your Canvas courses, syllabi, and assignments.
