Student who are unable to get to the main campus, may request a library barcode to use for borrowing materials. To request a barcode, a distance education student should email the Ask A Librarian service with a library card request including their name, address, telephone number, CCM email address and student ID number. Upon receipt of the email, a barcode will be sent to the student.
Students who are not able to come to the CCM Library may contact a Librarian for assistance with materials. The CCM Library can offer ebook suggestions, recommend print books available in the studentâ€™s local public library, or send a photocopied chapter from a print book in the CCM Libraryâ€™s collection.
