Library Services During COVID-19 Closure
During this period of college closure, MIC Library’s online services continue to be available 24 hours per day to students and staff, and these are accessible via the Library Website.
How to Contact Us and Get Help
Library staff will be available to answer online queries from 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday. All user queries should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or sent through the Ask A Question link on the Library Website. Information on all MIC Library Services is also available on our A-Z of Services page on the Library Website.
If you are a registered student or staff member, it is possible to access all online information resources from home. When you click on a link to a Database or an E-Journal, a window will pop up prompting you for a user name and password, please log in using your MIC username and password. More details are also available here.
Online Resources Available

As the College closure progresses, online resource providers are starting to make their content freely available. The Library have created a Subject Guide to list these additional resources, which mostly consists of primary, secondary and higher level academic textbooks. We will update the Subject Guide as more resources become available.
Ordering eBooks for Courses
MIC Faculty members who wish to order eBooks to facilitate remote learning can do so by emailing email@example.com and we will do our best to make the book available as quickly as possible. Not all books are available as ebooks, but we will endeavour to get as many ebooks for students as the College’s contracted ebook supplier can provide. MIC Faculty can contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you require further information on this option.
Borrowing and returning of books
Fines have been waived on books for the duration of the period of closure. If you receieve an automated overdue notice, please ignore these as fines on any overdues will be waived once the campus reopens
