Welcome!  This guide has been created to direct you to good quality resources for your research.  Some of the most useful features of this guide are:

The box on the left on this screen tells you how to access databases from off campus. There's lots of great stuff in the databases!

You will find some additional Guides in the Specific Assignments box on the left to direct  you to sources for some specific assignments.

The Finding Books & Media tab at the top of the page contains access to the Library Catalog which lists books and audiovisual media in the MCC Library.  Also on this tab you will find databases that contain full-text reference books on many subjects.

The Finding Articles & More tab will take you to databases that contain articles in journals, magazines, newspapers, and more.  This is probably the part of this guide that you will use the most!! 

The Evaluating Sources tab will take you to our Source Evaluation Rubric (SCARAB Rubric) which will help you select good quality sources suitable for use in a college-level research paper.

The Citing Sources tab provides sample citations for both MLA and APA citation styles.
