Resources and Services for Faculty


Library liaisons work with faculty to integrate information literacy into class assignments, and to target the most effective library resources for assignments. Liaisons are available to meet individually, in small groups, or as a department.

Course Reserves

Textbooks and supplemental course material may be placed on reserve in the Library. The items you provide will be stored at the our circulation desk and lent out to students securely. We offer multiple loan periods including a two hour in-library only option.

Linking to Resources

Linking to Library resources can be tricky. Learn how to format links to electronic journals, embed videos in D2L and more using our Link Tips.

Course Guides

Research guides for individual courses can be co-developed with and hosted through the library. These guides can contain specific library resources, supplemental course material and other electronic resources. View a selection of course guides which were created using our new LibGuide platform: AMIS 1350, CHEM 1020 and READ 1300.


The Library offers self-guided audio and video tours. The tours introduce students to our resources, services and study spaces, but they do not provide instruction on library usage. Please consult our FAQ for information on library instruction.

Purchase Requests

Materials that would supplement or support an MCTC course or assignment, especially those that would be used frequently, are good candidates for a request to purchase. Note that the library does not purchase required texts for classes.
