Library Instruction and Information Literacy:
  • Professional librarians provide faculty and students across the curriculum with instruction in information literacy (IL) skills and using library resources, including the library catalog, databases, and print and electronic collections.
  • Library instruction sessions are designed and scheduled to meet the particular needs of your students.
  • For more information, please visit our Library Instruction page at 
General Policies:
  • Our Library Instruction program is designed to be assignment-specific, as instruction is most meaningful to the students when done in connection with a specific course-related activity.
  • MHCC does not offer stand-alone, for-credit library courses; all librarian-led information literacy instruction occurs during the regular class meeting times of subject-specific courses.
  • Instructors must be present during library instruction sessions, or provide a substitute.
  • We require advance notice of at least 10 calendar days in order to adequately schedule and prepare for your class.
  • We require all faculty requestors to complete the online request form. Why? For statistical purposes and to best prepare our collaboration with faculty.

Please contact for more information about the MHCC Library Instruction program.

If your class met with a librarian in our classroom or yours, you will find your online class guide linked here on our Class Guides page.

Ways to find your online class guide on our Class Guides page:

  • Browse by instructor
  • Browse by term
  • Type in your class or instructor's name in the "Find a Guide" search box on the side

Please note that we post 1 year of prior guides. Contact a librarian if you cannot find the class guide or resources you are looking for.

General tours, drop-in classes, or orientations unrelated to a specific course assignment do not fall under the overall purview of the MHCC Library Instruction program
For scheduling library orientations and tours, contact directly.
