ILL is a service through which materials in other libraries can be acquired and is is available to all Connecticut residents who own a MCC library card.

Library Instruction

The library instruction program strives to teach our students effective research skills enabling them to search electronic and printed resources to locate needed information. Through the library instruction program, the library teaching staff also educates students to be critical thinkers so that they can evaluate the merit and validity of any information identified in the course of the research process.


Any full- or part-time faculty member may put materials on academic reserve in the library. Materials may include textbooks, supplemental reading books, photocopies of articles, videos, DVD's, CD's, audiocassettes, answer keys, and study guides. Library materials may also be placed on reserve, such as books, videos, DVD's, CD's and audiocassettes. Reference items and periodicals from the library collection may not be placed on reserve, since these items do not circulate outside of the library and are always available for student use in the library.
