MCCC Library Home Page Summer Update. From Pam Price: The home page for the MCCC libraries has changed to highlight our new search tool – MerSearch, located at: This is a summer-long trial of a new discovery service that offers the convenience of using a one-search interface to access specific content. Another benefit of MerSearch is that search results include: books listed in the MCCC online catalog, full-text journal articles, newspapers, eBooks, AP images and videos. Additionally, there is a variety of information included from case studies, congressional documents, open textbooks, primary source documents, and TV/Radio news transcripts, to name a few subjects that complement our academic program offerings. Direct access to the library’s list of databases and online catalog is still available to the left of the MerSearch box. As always, current student, faculty, and staff access to library resources is still available from off-campus locations by using the appropriate login procedures. Please contact the library at x3560 or at for assistance, or if you have questions. We are happy to hear your feedback and suggestions as we make improvements to our services.
