What services do you offer?

Assistance with research, citations, and general library use is available from one of our friendly librarians in person, by phone, and by email.  The library lends items from the KCC collection (see "What types of materials do you have?") and will mail items to online students.  The library can obtain items from other libraries through interlibrary loan.  The library provides access to databases and NoodleTools via the library's home page.  Wi-Fi and computers with internet access and printing capability are also offered. A copy machine ($0.10 per page) is available in both the Roscommon and Grayling locations, and FAX service as well as study rooms with DVD players are available in the library at Roscommon.  Tutoring services are based in the library (Roscommon) and Student Resources Center (Grayling).  For more information about individual services, please refer to the related FAQ. 

What types of materials do you have?

In addition to a large collection of books to support college coursework, the library offers a selection of magazines and journals, current literature, DVDs, a young adult fiction section, a children’s collection, and audio books. Access to databases and NoodleTools is available via the library's home page. The library also lends special items for specific courses, such as calculators for math classes and foot pedals for Office Procedures class.

Where do I go for tutoring?

KCC offers free drop-in tutoring for math and writing as well as a tutoring program that strives to provide assistance in most subjects.  Tutoring is available to currently enrolled Kirtland students.  Please see the tutoring page or contact a librarian for more information about tutoring services.

Central campus at Roscommon:

Math Drop-In Lab - As you enter the library, turn right.  Pass the circulation desk and look for the hanging sign that says Math Drop-In Lab.  Turn to the right and walk straight ahead.  You will pass the copier and go through a doorway into a very short hall.  The math lab is straight ahead.

Writing Center – As you enter the library, turn right.  Pass the circulation desk and the express computer stations.  The Writing Center is the little office that is straight ahead of you.

Kirtland Health Sciences Center at Grayling:

The Math Drop-In Lab and the Writing Center are both located in the Library/Student Resource Center.  The Library/Student Resource Center is located in Room 1401, which is on the left as you enter Corridor B from the first floor main hall.  

Kirtland M-TEC at Gaylord:

Please see the tutoring page or contact M-TEC’s main office for more information about the times and location of M-TEC's Writing Center.  Writing assistance is also available online.  For more information about the Online Writing Lab see the OWL page.  Please see the tutoring page or contact a librarian for more information about these services and about assistance in other subjects.

Kirtland at West Branch:

In addition to the Writing Centers and Drop-In Math Labs, Kirtland’s tutoring program strives to provide assistance in most subjects.  See the tutoring page  or contact the Tutoring Center in the Library for more information about tutoring services.

Is there somebody who can help me find information for an assignment/cite a source/format a paper?

Yes!  The reference librarian will gladly help you with these tasks.  You can contact the librarian by telephone, email, or in person.  The reference computers (Roscommon) are a great place to work if you think you may want some assistance during a work session.

In addition to personal services, your friendly librarians have also gathered and created a variety of resources into LibGuides to assist you including  Research Made Easy, which is a good place to start any research project.
