What if my books are due when the campus is closed?

The due dates for all items due during this closure have been renewed to May 6th, and no fines will accrue while we are closed. The campus is closed so items cannot be returned to the library until we reopen on May 1. Please hold on to your checked out items until the library reopens.

How can I access textbooks for my class if the library is closed?

Many publishers have made their e-textbooks available for free (for a limited time) for schools affected by COVID-19 closures. These e-textbooks can be found on RedShelf or VitalSource. To view which classes have titles available on these sites and for more information see this page on our website. Both of these resources require registration (with your student email) and allow you to check out up to 7 free e-textbooks until May 25th.

You might also consider contacting your instructor to see if she/he might be able to make portions of the text available to you digitally, or to direct you to where the text can be accessed online.

How can I get help with my projects, papers and assignments?

The MVC Library's many online resources - including journals, ebooks, magazines, newspapers, streaming video and more - remain available. You can access these electronic resource from our A-Z database list.

Librarians can also be contacted for assistance during our regular hours through our library chat service, or via email.
