About Community in Focus Library Initiative Collection

The MCC Library bridges and celebrates the creative, social, and cultural life of the MCC community through a variety of informal and co-and extra-curricular learning experiences. 

The Community in Focus Library Initiative Collection commemorates those collaborative events and activities to expose students, faculty, staff, and the rest of the MCC community to new opportunities and horizons. This collection provides access to resources, images, and related materials to Library initiatives on MCC faculty and staff engagementcreating and making, and literacy.

Within the creating and making initiative are projects such as the Community in Focus Photo Contest and creation/maker and stress stops. The MCC faculty and staff engagement activities focus on the scholarly and creative experiences the Library offers these populations such as research and writing bootcamps and author/creator bibliographies, readings, and MCC Writes posters. Literacy events captured in this collection include library displays, student reading events, and coffee klatches. 

New image galleries include:

Fall 2018 Student Photo Contest 

Students answer the question of what community means to them through photography. The contest, co-sponosred by the Library, Student Life, and VPMA, was from October 1 to November 5. The opening reception with presentation of awards was on November 20 at 2 PM in the Library.

Library Displays and Events 

Librarians create book/material displays and host reading/literacy and other events. These resources and activities supplement or raise awareness of campus and current events, and of issues affecting our community.

Library Creation and Making Activities

Librarians offer activities that focus on informal learning through collaborative creation and making activities.

This collection will grow as we offer new resources and experiences related to our community. Limited development information is available on the Collection Acknowledgements page.
