About Distance Learning Library Services & Resources

Welcome to MCC Libraries Distance Learning Library Services & Resources website. Click on the tabs above to explore quality information resources.

Library services to MCC distance education and online students are parallel to service for campus students. Service is based upon the Standards for Distance Learning Library Services guidelines developed by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL).

Finding Books

Use the Find Books & Media tab to search MCC Libraries catalog for books and other materials available in our collection.

Off-Campus Access To Library Databases

Use the Find Articles & Databases tab to identify library databases and search for articles available in professional journals, magazines, and newspapers. Off-campus access requires sign-in with your MCC student email username and password. Follow on-screen instructions when prompted to sign-in to EZproxy.

Obtaining Items Not Available Online

Can't find the article you need in one of our online databases? Request a copy of it using our Interlibrary Loan service (Illiad). ILLiad offers e-mail delivery of articles not owned by MCC Libraries. Articles will arrive approximately 48 hours to your MCC e-mail.

Also use Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) to request:

  • E-mail delivery of book chapters which will arrive approximately 48 hours to your MCC email.

Research Help

Use the Getting Started with Research tab for help with searching for books and articles, plus tips on writing a research paper.

The Online Tutorials tab provides links to video tutorials to learn how to search our library catalog to find books and e-books, how to search for articles and other information in our databases, and more!

Visit the Research Guides tab to see the variety of subject research and course guides created by MCC Librarians to help support MCC course content and assignments.

  • For additional help schedule a Research Coaching Session to meet with a librarian and get personalized help with your research. These one-on-one meetings last about 30 minutes, or use the Ask Us 24/7 Chat widget in the box at the right to get "live" research help from a librarian.
