Camden-Carroll Library is the information center of Morehead State University. The Library's collections of books, journals, newspapers, and government documents in both print and electronic format, as well as its non-print media, support the University's curriculum and provide a wealth of materials to meet students' research, recreational, and personal enrichment needs. Over 60 public workstations located throughout the building afford students access to a world of Web-based resources, including a galaxy of online databases.
One of the library's primary tasks is to provide research assistance. The Reference staff provides students with one-on-one help with searching for and finding materials in the library and online. The goal of the library's Instructional Services is to promote information literacy skills which include the ability to find, evaluate, and use information effectively and ethically. The Library offers two courses to help students improve these skills: LSIM 101- Introduction to Library Research and LSIM 201-Living in an Information Society. Instructional Services staff provides subject and assignment specific instruction for individual classes and also conducts building tours.
Through its Interlibrary Loan Services, the Library participates in state and national resource-sharing networks to obtain materials not available locally. The Extended Campus Library Services Office is responsible for providing research, document delivery, and instructional services to the faculty and students in any of Morehead State University's Off-Campus, Distance Learning, or Internet programs.
The Learning Resource Center (LRC) is a multimedia center containing computer software, DVDs, video recordings, audio cassettes and CDs, kits, and teaching aids, as well as children's literature and a pre-school through grade 12 collection of textbooks and curriculum guides.
The Learning Technology Lab consists of 10 workstations providing hardware and software for creating computer graphics, scans, videocaptures, Web sites, and presentations.
