Electronic reserves are limited to currently enrolled students
and available through Blackboard. Use
your MBC username (the first part of your MBC email address, do not include
the @mbc.edu) and pin to login to Blackboard.
Once you login, you will see the list of courses you are enrolled
in under My Courses (on the right side of the screen). If you do not
see the course you need, contact the instructor. Open the course page
and choose the Course Documents link in the sidebar. You should see
a list of all the reserve readings for the class.
Electronic reserve documents are in PDF format. You will
need Acrobat Reader to view them, which you can download for
free at the Adobe web site. If you have problems accessing the
electronic reserves call 540-887-7085.
Print reserves are available at the circulation desk on the main
floor of the library. Each student may checkout up to three reserves
at one time. Reserves check out for 2 hours and may not leave the library.
