Collection Development / Recommend a Purchase

If you would like to request a resource for the library to add to its collection then you can place a request through OneSearch or you can email the library directly (reference@mvc.edu). Paper forms are also available at all three RCCD libraries.

Course Materials (Reserves)

If you have textbooks, study guides, photocopies of articles, or other course materials you would like to have available for your students at the library, bring the items to the circulation desk at the library and fill out a Reserve Request Form. These items will be made available for student use within 3 working days. Students can see what has been placed on reserve by searching the OneSearch Library Catalog and searching for course material by instructor or course abbreviation. To place materials on reserve in the library, complete the Library Reserve Request Form.

Intercollege Loan

Need a book or a video from another campus' library? You can request it through the OneSearch catalog by logging into your OneSeach account or by contacting the library at (951) 571-6112 or reference@mvc.edu. You will have your item within three business days. Materials can be returned at any of the three college libraries.

Another option that is free is to order through the Link+ system. This service allows those who have a Library card from a library that is a member of LINK+ to order books free from other Link+ libraries (including Loma Linda University and La Sierra University). You can also visit a member library and check out books directly with your appropriate library card. These books cannot be returned to an RCCD library. Find out more about the Link+ service.
