Services for Students, Faculty & Staff
Our library circulates over 60,000 books, DVDs, and other media. Course Reserve items, laptops and group study rooms can also be accessed with just your student ID. Find out the basics of borrowing material from the library.
Off Campus Access
Many library resources require you to log in when you are off campus. Your StarID username and password allows you to access ebooks, articles and streaming media from home.
Library liaisons work with faculty to integrate information literacy into class assignments, and to target the most effective library resources for assignments. Liaisons are available to meet individually, in small groups, or as a department.
Textbooks and supplemental course material may be placed on reserve in the Library. The items you provide will be stored at the our circulation desk and lent out to students securely. We offer multiple loan periods including a two hour in-library only option.
Research guides for individual courses can be co-developed with and hosted through the library. These guides can contain specific library resources, supplemental course material and other electronic resources. View a selection of course guides which were created using our new LibGuide platform: AMIS 1350, CHEM 1020 and READ 1300.
Materials that would supplement or support an Minneapolis College course or assignment, especially those that would be used frequently, are good candidates for a request to purchase. Note that the library does not purchase required texts for classes.
