Mission College Library provides academic support services for faculty in all programs. Stop by the Library or make an appointment for a personal orientation to our services. Reviewing course needs with the librarians will ensure that we have all the materials students need to successfully complete your course.
Includes information on borrowing material, instructor reserves, textbook reserves, electronic resources, and Library services.
"Instructor Reserves" are items placed on reserve by faculty for the students in their courses.
The easiest way to access research assistance, subject guides, and useful resources both on- and off-campus.
E-books may be accessed through the Library’s Online Catalog
or from the Electronic Books & Films
database subject page. For information regarding accessing, downloading, printing, and emailing e-books, refer to the E-Books
The Library provides online access to films. These films may be accessed through the Library’s Online Catalog

subject page. For instructions on how to access and search for films, and embed films in ANGEL, refer to the Films on Demand
Faculty are encouraged to use articles from the subscription databases as course material.
