You can now apply for a library card from the N.C. State Library and get access to several important databases not found in NC Live.
Use the link below to check availability in the LRC Conference Room and then call the library, or e-mail Mary Anne Caudle or Pam Perry, to reserve the room. Please also remember to call us if your meeting is canceled.
Faculty have full access to the Chronicle, including premium content, on and off campus. For off campus access, create a login using your Martin e-mail and a password you choose.
Martin faculty, staff and students have access to books from 49 other community colleges through our shared library catalog. For instructions on requesting books from other community colleges, click the Interlibrary Loan link below.
The Martin Community College Library also has an interlibrary loan agreement with ECU. If you need a book or article that is not in our community college shared catalog, let the library know and we can often obtain it for you from ECU. (Martin faculty, staff and students may also visit ECU's Joyner Library and set up a library account there by showing their current Martin ID card. See the link below for more information about borrowing privileges and other services at Joyner Library.)
The group study room in the library is available for faculty and staff, as well as students. This is a great place for adjuncts without offices to meet with students. The room accommodates up to five people and has a computer with Internet access, Microsoft Office 2013, and printing capability. Call the library, or e-mail Mary Anne Caudle or Pam Perry to reserve.
Once you receive your library card, you will be able to access the following databases through the State Library's web site. Visit the database links for more information about each database.
The library welcomes suggestions of books to be added to the collection. Please e-mail Mary Anne. Include the title, author, and copyright date in your e-mail. The Library Director is also happy to meet with you concerning more extensive updates to your subject area in the library collection.
(Purchase decisions may depend upon budget and library needs.)

Martin has access to dozens of databases through NC Live. We also have three databases that are independent of NC Live: Credo Reference, Stat!Ref, and A.D.A.M., as well as ebook versions of our Salem Press print titles. The password for all databases at Martin, except The Chronicle of Higher Education and RCL Plus (which have links on the Faculty/Staff page of the library web site) is your BlackBoard login or your 7-digit Datatel number followed by MR. Call the library at extension 238 if you need assistance.
The Library Director is happy to do a library instruction session for your class. This can be a standard orientation about library resources or a session tailored to a specific assignment. To schedule a session, call or e-mail Mary Anne.
A library orientation for distance education classes is available at the link below or by clicking the ACA Library Orientation tab on the library's home page.
Faculty at Martin Community College have access to a database called RCL Plus, which provides information about books recommended for colleges and vocational and technical schools. You can search by subject to explore the list of books recommended in your subject area (see link below). For off campus use, please call the library for the password.
