Michael Chenette Professor Abdullah October 18, 2007 ENG 101 – 20322 Library Tutorial For this paper, we were asked to view the first two units about Montgomery College’s library on their website. The first two units discussed the MC Rockville library and call numbers, finding books, CD’s, etc. in the library. In order to be allowed to check out books from the library, we need our MC Student ID. This will be our pass for checking out items at the library. Once it is activated, we use is to check out books. We are allowed to check out books from the library but we are not allowed to check out reference books. We cannot check out magazines, newspapers or journals. The computers there are available for everyone. We are allowed to watch video’s in the library as long as they are the libraries videos. There are many opportunities that are available in the library. For instance, group work is allowed as long as it is quiet. All of these points are included in the first Unit of the tutorials on the website.

The call numbers are all organized by categories. For example, World History is listed as D, education is under L, and music is under M. Call numbers are used to keep items on similar topics together. These call numbers are also used to enable the library staff to keep items in order to that we can find things quickly.

The number that follows that specifies what category goes under the previous one. Biology is QH. Genetics is 437. So far, the whole call number we have is QH 437.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
