160.030 – LIBRARY & LEARNING RESOURCES

Revised: September 2016

POLICY
The Maine Media College Library is located in the Haas Building. There are standard reference works, both specialized and general, as well as periodicals, CDs, videos, DVDs, and audio tapes on a variety of subjects. Books and other materials on the work of past and contemporary imagemakers are represented.

PROCEDURE
Most of the library materials are for research use only, and are non- circulating. However, videotapes and selected text books and other course materials are available for loan. The loan period is one week. Special arrangements may be made for faculty members and graduate students to use materials for longer periods. All patrons must sign out materials with the business office, leaving name, contact information, and, in the case of video tapes, a major credit card.

MMC students may procure library cards from the Rockport Public Library by presenting their student identification cards. Through the Rockport Public Library, students have access to participate in inter-library loan services. MMC students also have access to University of Maine libraries with a valid MMC identification card.

Non-resident students are required to establish relationships with their local research libraries, most of which convey privileges to students with a valid college identification card. In the event that a local library is resistant to extend privileges to a MMC student, MMC staff will attempt to broker access.
