An Important Note on Reusing Library Resources

Content within the databases and collections offered by the MCC Library can often be reused in educational contexts (e.g., in course packs, within an online course, etc.). The librarians at MCC can help clarify whether a given use is authorized or prohibited. If you have a question concerning the reuse of licensed content, contact Elizabeth Nelson or call the reference desk at (815) 455-8762.

Guide Introduction

The MCC Library provides access to a variety of resources that can be used to enhance your instruction in both online and in face-to-face environments. The following guide will provide some tips on using these resources effectively. Successfully integrating library resources into your courses ensures that your students not only access the materials needed to succeed, but that they can do so as seamlessly as possible.
