Mobile apps and websites for Mott Library resources

Several of the Mott Library’s online resources offer mobile apps and mobile websites designed to work on smartphones and tablets.

Mobile Apps:

  • The EBSCOhost mobile app allows you to search EBSCO databases including Academic Search Complete and CINAHL. EBSCOhost is compatible with Android, iPhone, iPod, and iPad devices. In addition to downloading the app, you need to authenticate your device.
  • The ebrary mobile app allows you to download an e-book to your mobile device for up to 2 weeks so you can read the e-book offline. Download the ebrary mobile app to use on your iPhone and iPad or Android smartphone and tablet. Please note: you only need to download an e-book if you want to read it in a location where you do not have internet access.
  • The BookMyne mobile app allows you to search the Mott Library catalog, place holds, and view or renew items you have checked out. BookMyne is compatible with Apple and Android devices.

Mott Library pleased to announce the addition of LibGuides

The Mott Library is pleased to announce the addition of LibGuides. LibGuides provide research assistance and subject guides to useful resources compiled by your friendly Mott Community College librarians. Know what we know – find it in LibGuides!

LibGuides can be created for specific courses or assignments or general topics, or to provide information about the library.

These guide incorporate Web 2.0 tools such as streaming video, RSS feeds and interactive polls…all geared towards your topic.

LibGuides are accessible anywhere you have access to the Internet.

If you think a LibGuide would enhance your students’ learning experience, we invite you to contact a librarian to create a guide to fit your curriculum. If you don’t have time to plan a guide for a specific course, you can request a guide in your discipline, or recommend resources for existing LibGuides.

To access LibGuides, point your browser to www.library.mcc.edu and choose “LibGuides” which can be found under the “Students” heading.
