Textbook Information (Helm)

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.

In order to assist you more quickly, our staff requests that you provide a call number when requesting items at the desk.


Online and OER Textbook Information

 Using Your OER Text Materials

Congratulations, your course uses open educational resources, which means that your textbook is available for free online.

Now you just need to figure out what way works best for you to access your text - in print, on a laptop, PC, or other device.

Whether you are using a printed copy or a digital copy, you will have to download the file from BlackBoard to your own device so that you can highlight and make notes as you read.
