The mission of the Mount Carmel Health Sciences Library (MCHSL) is to connect the Mount Carmel Health System academic and professional communities with personalized information services and resources.

MCHSL, located on the third and fourth floors of the Center for Learning and Education (CLE), is the primary information resource center for students and faculty of the College of Nursing. The Library operates and supports Mount Carmel Health System (MCHS) customer needs at all six Columbus operating sites, (Mount Carmel West, East, St Ann's, New Albany, Diley Ridge, and Grove City), as well as the Lancaster Campus.

Please help the staff maintain the Library as a quiet place for research and study. Cold foods, small snacks, and drinks with lids are allowed in the Library. Cell phone conversations are not permitted in the Library.

The MCHSL collection at the Columbus Campus library is comprised of approximately 85,000 print and electronic volumes, of which about 30% are nursing-related titles. MCHSL journal holdings include 11,000 online and hard copy subscriptions; approximately 25% of the journals are nursing-related. A catalog of the collection can be accessed online.

The MCHSL offers a full range of services including inter-library loans/document delivery, instruction on using electronic resources, an online catalog of the collection; remote access to a wide range of nursing, medical, and allied health full-text databases; virtual and in-person reference support. As a member of OPAL (Ohio Private Academic Libraries) and OhioLINK (the state-wide resource consortium of college and university libraries), MCHSL provides access to the collections of over 121 additional institutions of higher learning; many of these resources can be accessed remotely.

Website

The MCHSL has a comprehensive website that can be accessed either through Insight, the Mount Carmel intranet, or by going to http://library.mchs.com. The website provides links to all of the MCHSL online resources which can be reached on any MCHS campus or remotely. An online orientation is available at the site to familiarize users with Library services.

Borrowing

A Mount Carmel College of Nursing student ID is required to borrow Library materials. The loan period for books is three weeks, and books may be renewed up to six times, as long as another user has not requested the book, for a maximum borrowing period of 18 weeks. Bound journals circulate on a case-by-case basis; depending upon the journal title, current issues may be borrowed overnight.

Overdue materials are subject to late fees, and Library staff will notify the College of Nursing if borrowed materials are delinquent. Students placed on Library "hold" for library infractions cannot register for classes or receive transcripts until the Library obligation has been resolved. This may result in the student being closed out of a specific course or section. All fines must be paid and materials must be returned to the Library in order for students to be admitted to classes the following semester.

Closed Reserves

Materials on closed reserve can be requested at the circulation desk. Closed reserves must remain in the Library. There are also electronic reserves available, depending upon faculty requirements.

Computers

There are workstations for public access in the Library. Workstations on the third floor of the Library have wireless connectivity, while workstations on the fourth floor are connected to the Mount Carmel intranet. Laptop computers are available and can be checked out on a daily basis during Library opening hours for on-campus use only. The Library offers wireless access on both floors for the convenience of students with personal laptop computers and other mobile computer devices.

Student Study Rooms

Seven study rooms on the third and fourth floors of the MCHSL are available for student use. Study Room number 302 on the third floor, and study room numbered 1, 2, 3, 402, 403 and 404 located on the fourth floor can be reserved on-line for individual or group study. Reserves must be placed by 8:00 AM on the day of the reserve. When study rooms are not reserved, they can be used on first come first serve basis. Student access to the three rooms located on the West wall of the 4th floor of the MCW Library location is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Chapel

Mount Carmel West Chapel offers both Roman Catholic and Protestant worship services on Sundays. A Roman Catholic Mass is celebrated regularly in this chapel; in addition, interfaith prayer services are offered periodically. The Chapel is open at all times and provides a quiet place for reflection. Hours for scheduled services are posted on the Chapel door. There are also many other places of worship in the area for students of all faiths.

Student Resident Apartments

Students have the opportunity to live on campus in one of two Residence Halls, Angela Hall and Holy Cross Hall.

The Residence Halls are staffed by a Resident Coordinator (RC) and selected Resident Assistants (RAs) who report directly to the Director of Student Life.
