This guide contains a wealth of information about OER and links to all kinds of OER resources.
Use the link below to check availability in the library's three meeting rooms and then call the library, or e-mail Mary Anne Caudle or Pam Perry, to reserve a room. The main conference room bookings are designated LRC, the Instruction Lab bookings LAB, and Local History Room bookings are designated LHR. Please also remember to call us if your meeting is canceled.
Martin faculty, staff and students have access to books from 50 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 rooms in the library are available for faculty and staff, as well as students. This is a great place for adjuncts without offices to meet with students. The rooms accommodate five to six people and have a computer with Internet access, Microsoft Office 2016, and printing capability. Call the library, or e-mail Mary Anne Caudle or Pam Perry to reserve.
