About Us

Adapted from the Student Handbook:

The MVCC Libraries strive to provide students, faculty, and staff with access to excellent information resources and services. The primary focus of the collection and primary function of the library staff is to support the teaching, learning, and recreational interests of the College community as well as to promote information literacy.

Students may communicate with librarians for research assistance in multiple ways, including via chat, text, phone, email, Facebook, as well as by in-person contact with a librarian on campus. Librarians are available during open hours for individual and group instruction. A quality instructional program designed to assist students in learning how to conduct research and develop information literacy skills is also provided.

Students can access resources through the library website. All books, audio books, DVDs, and most electronic books are listed in our online catalog. The library has over 120 databases that are available to current students both on-campus and off-campus. Additionally, the library website provides access to research guides, library information, and links to web resources. 

Both libraries operate on an abbreviated schedule during vacation periods and summer months, and on an extended schedule during exam periods. Notice of any changes in library hours is posted within the libraries as well as on the library website and Facebook page. 

The MVCC Libraries strive to bea vital part of the campus community, enhancing faculty instruction, meeting student research needs, and offering resources for leisure and lifelong learning moments.
