Book/Online Resources Requests

Reserve Material | Interlibrary Loan

Library Website

The library’s website is easy to navigate and use.  MAC’s collection of books and online resources can be searched as well as the book collections of other academic libraries in the state.  Books from other libraries can easily be requested to be sent to MAC from the book’s record. 

Remote access is available for Mineral Area College faculty, students, and staff.  Click on “Search for Articles” for a listing of the available online resources.  Once you have selected a database you will be prompted for your ID number (include MAC at the end) and your last name.

Library Use Instruction

Library skills can play a key role in student success. Library Use Instruction sessions may introduce your students to the research process, to the Library collection in general, or to specific reference tools. Classes are customized to meet students’ needs and can range from a ten-minute explanation of an online magazine/journal database to multiple sessions covering a wide range of library resources.

Arrangements can be made for classes at the main campus and at the outreach centers. Arrangements should be made as far in advance as possible.

Please schedule Library Use Instruction sessions as far in advance as possible by calling x2236 or emailing rkharrin@mineralarea.edu

 
Book/Online Resources Requests

Faculty members are encouraged to recommend materials for the library collection.  Submit your recommendations by emailing mhopkins@mineralarea.edu.  The library does have a Collection Development Policy available for your information and comment.

Reserve Material

Individual faculty members and departments may place supplemental materials on Reserve at the Circulation Desk for student use.  Reserve materials may be taken from the library general collection or instructors may bring in material of their own, books or articles.

The terms and use of the reserve material is determined by the instructor.  Please complete the online Faculty Reserve Form and bring the material and form to the library so the material can be placed on reserve.  If you have any questions call Rebecca Young at x2141.

Interlibrary Loan
           
Faculty may borrow books easily from any academic library in Missouri by searching MOBIUS through Mineral Area College library’s website.  There is a Request button at the top of each book’s record to ask that the book be sent to MAC for your use.  The courier runs every day and it usually takes about a week for materials to be received.

If a journal article is needed complete the interlibrary loan request form provided at the library with the needed information to order the article.  Please be sure and check the online resources provided through our website before requesting a journal article through interlibrary loan.
