Faculty: Don't Forget Course Reserves

If you are a MC faculty member and plan to place items on course reserve, remember that all of our course reserve information is available on our website along with the necessary forms.

Please allow 48 hours for processing. At times of high volume, especially at semester's beginning, processing may take longer. For this reason, we recommend that reserve forms be submitted well in advance of their anticipated date of first use.

Welcome Back to Campus

Welcome back to campus!  Hewes Library would like to welcome our new students and say hello to our returning students, staff, and faculty.


This fall, be sure to watch for materials from the MC Archives on display in the main lobby.  Lynn Daw, Technical Services Librarian and Archivist, will be filling the new display case with college memorabilia throughout the year.  Stop by and glance through some of the photographs of the campus through the years.

The library website also received a face lift this summer and has a cleaner, more streamlined look.  The organization of information remains the same, so resources that you are used to using should be in the same location.

Einstein Brothers Bagels opens and resumes regular hours on Tuesday, August 25, 2015.
