Policies for Ordering Non-print Materials

The same criteria applied to selecting other library materials are used for selecting all non-print materials. The majority of our non-print materials purchases are acquired at the request of teaching faculty. Requests from adjunct faculty are submitted by a full time faculty member.

It is recommended that materials be previewed before being purchased. Previews can be trailers offered online and published reviews of the resource. 

If the cost of materials is expected to be paid from MCC Library funds, the Librarians and the Library Chair must review and approve before any personal commitments or arrangements for purchase are made.
