New books!

This summer and fall, the WMCC Fortier Library has added over 350 new books to our collection, ranging from business, to culinary, child care, education, the environment and everything in between. If you're looking for something by title, author, or by subject, check out our catalog, or browse our shelves. And if we don't have what you're looking for, chances are we can get it from another library. Just ask!

Introducing ProQuest

The WMCC library is pleased to announce a new addition to our databases family: ProQuest.

ProQuest is a research database with over 8,000 titles in full text. You can search by entering a key word(s), by topic, or by publication. Resulting hits can be narrowed down by scholarly journals, dissertations, books, newspapers, trade publications, and magazines as well as by clicking on suggested subject headings.

Listed with our other research tools, a link to ProQuest may be found on the Library's homepage, using the Databases link. The username and password necessary to access it remotely are available from the library staff.

New Laptops in the Library

Thanks to the WMCC Student Senate, the library now has 2 new Dell Latitude E5400 laptops!

These two laptops are wireless, and print to the HP LaserJet P4014 printer (outside the library office), have Office 2007 and Open Office 3.1, CD/DVD burners, and even have SD card slots. They will be available to WMCC students to use in the library only, and will have to be checked out, the same way reserve materials are. They'll be available on a first-come, first served basis.

When all other library computers are busy, ask a member of the library staff if you can check out a laptop!
