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.

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.
