The library has a small collection of college texts, known as course reserves.  They are shelved behind the circulation desk, are provided by instructors, incur larger fines, and have shorter loan periods.  A list of the texts required for your courses is available to you when you are logged into your college account through mymcc. Limit your search to only MCC reserve materials by using the searchbox below.
