For general inquiries about library services and resources, please contact:
The McGraw-Page Library building is open to current members of the R-MC community only during the fall semester while the campus's mask mandate is in place. You will need your College ID and/or fob to gain entry. Our hours of operation can be found at https://library.rmc.edu/library/hours.
If you are not a current member of the R-MC community but need to access the building or collections, please complete this form to make an appointment. Please note that the appointment is not scheduled until it is confirmed by a member of the Library staff. If you need to access the Flavia Reed Owen Special Collections & Archives, please complete this form instead.
Masks are mandatory for all members of the R-MC Community, regardless of vaccination status. However, those who are fully vaccinated are no longer required to physically distance after May 28, 2021.
Hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes continue to be available throughout the building.
Although you are welcome to come to the Library to browse our collections, you can still place a hold for books or DVDs through the catalog and you will receive an email when your item is available for pick-up (learn how). Please note that this service is only available to the students, faculty, and staff of R-MC.
Interlibrary loan continues to supply materials from other libraries. Requests for articles or book chapters can be readily filled. There continue to be some delays in receiving materials, but these are expected to continue to improve. Materials can be requested via Tipasa. From the library catalog and most databases, follow the options to "Request via Interlibrary Loan." For more information visit https://library.rmc.edu/library/ILL.
Course reserves are made available either physically or electronically for the fall semester. If physical materials need to be placed on reserve for a course, please contact Judee Showalter to discuss what options are available.
If you need help with Zoom, Canvas, or other technologies to support online learning, please start by visiting R-MC Resources for Online/Hybrid/In-Person Learning During COVID-19 or search our FAQ.
The Library works hard to maintain access to our electronic resources at all times. If you have trouble accessing any of our resources, try using the Chrome internet browser. If this does not resolve your issue, please email email@example.com and we will troubleshoot your specific problem. Please include as much information in your email as possible.
All of our physical resources can be found by searching our library catalog using the Basic Search on the Library homepage: https://library.rmc.edu.
