The library is an integral part of the teaching and learning experience at Mott.
Students really appreciate having course materials available "on reserve".
Provide materials 2 weeks before the beginning of the semester, to ensure that they are available by the first day of class. Two forms are available online to download for your convenience.
For additional information or questions, contact Jessica.Himstedt@mcc.edu or call (810) 762-5649.
Faculty are encouraged to schedule an orientation for their classes. This is an opportunity to introduce the librarians to students and will help to reduce students’ anxiety when they enter the library and see a familiar face. Our orientations can be broad and basic, or specific to a class or assignment. Orientations can be as short as 5 minutes of your class time, to an hour long or a full class period. Contact the Reference Desk at 762-0411 to schedule an orientation.
LibGuides are sets of web pages that provide library related research assistance, subject guides, and useful resources. These guides incorporate 2.0 web tools such as streaming video and RSS feeds. The librarians at the Mott Library are happy to create a LibGuide for broad subjects and for specific classes and assignments. Getting input and ideas from faculty members will help the librarians understand instructors' expectations for their research assignments. If you would like to have a LibGuide created for your classes contact the Mott Library Reference Desk at 762-0411.
MCC Faculty may reserve the computer labs in the library. Both labs have an instructor's computer with a Crestron projection unit and 28 student computers networked to a pay-to-print system.
The reading room is a comfortably furnished room with materials from three special collections: the CTL collection, the S&M professional development collection, and college teaching materials from the library's collection. The books may be checked out by faculty and staff at the Mott Library circulation desk on the first floor. If the door to the reading room is locked, ask at the CTL office or the Mott Library reference desk.
Only MCC employees may reserve the Capitol Room (ML 2001) for meetings. Contact the library reference desk at (810) 762-0411 to schedule a reservation.
If you learn of a new publication that should be considered for our collection please let us know. Send us a copy of the review source, or just email as much information as you can, such as author and title, and we'll do the rest.
