Academic Support Services


Moodle (Backboard Open LMS) is MCC’s Learning Management System (LMS) designed to provide educators, administrators, and learners with a single robust, secure, and integrated system to
create personalized learning environments.

Learning Resource Center (LRC)

The Learning Resources Center acts as both an instructional support system and an information network. Services are provided not only to the faculty, staff, and students of Mayland Community College, but also to any resident of Avery, Mitchell, or Yancey County. Resources include both print and non-print materials, electronic resources, audio-visual equipment, and workshop/orientations.

The LRC is named for Carolyn Munro Wilson, a life-long educator and supporter of teaching and learning. It is centrally located on our main campus on the second floor of Gwaltney Hall and is open both day and evening Monday through Thursday and during the day on Friday.

Reserving needed equipment ahead of time is highly recommended.

Our automated catalog is part of the Community College Libraries in North Carolina (CCLNC) system. CCLINC is a consortium of community college libraries in North Carolina that has a shared catalog with more than a million learning resources, making this library cooperative third in size among the libraries of publicly-funded institutions of higher education in North Carolina. Materials not immediately available at MCC may often be obtained from other CCLINC libraries through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). If requested with enough advance notice, materials may also be mailed to students.

The LRC subscribes to many online resources providing some of the highest quality and most authoritative resources in the information marketplace including newspapers, journals, magazines, encyclopedias, e-books, and streaming videos. Everyone may access these resources via the Internet at our main campus and learning centers; however only MCC students, faculty, and staff may access our electronic resources off-campus by using links provided in the college’s portal. All of MCC’s computers, electronic resources, and Internet access must be used in accordance with MCC’s Information technology Acceptable Use Policy.
