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.


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.

Access to MCHS Libraries Databases

On campus, no access login is required.

Off campus or remote access username:  6-digit MCCN student ID number starting with the number ‘4’ (printed on each student’s semester schedule - accessed via CARMELink > Student tab). Click here  for instructions on locating your student ID and additional information about remote access.

Students encountering problems should contact MCHS Library Services at library@mchs.com (614-234-5214).


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.


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.

Lounge & Recreation Room

Located on the first floor of Marian Hall, the College Lounge is used for informal and scheduled STUDENT events. The multipurpose room is available for relaxing and studying. The Rec Room houses lounge and study areas, entertainment equipment, a kitchen for student use, and vending machines. This facility is available from 7:00am-Midnight, seven days a week.

Computer Labs

The College has two student computer labs located in the Center for Learning and Education (CLE 205 and 203). These facilities are available during weekday hours when the College receptionist is on duty in Marian Hall.

Food and beverages are not permitted in the computer labs.

It is expected that students have the basic knowledge to properly use computer and office automation software. Staff are available during regular business hours to assist students with computer hardware and software problems (614-234-1718),

Clinical Facilities

Clinical learning experiences are offered at several area hospitals, including those within the Mount Carmel Health System, and at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus. Numerous other clinical opportunities are conducted in conjunction with various community health agencies within Central Ohio. The clinical areas of study offer students an excellent and well-rounded opportunity to experience all elements of nursing care in a variety of environments.

Students are responsible for providing their own transportation for all educational activities, including clinical experiences. Students are also responsible for securing personal auto liability insurance.

The College of Nursing is not responsible for liability incurred in travel, either as required by the curriculum or as the result of the student’s participation in College sponsored activities, including cultural immersion trips. All travel is the responsibility of the student. Students are not permitted to transport patients for any reason.

Spirit Shop Online Store

The Spirit Shop is an online store where students can purchase a wide variety of college apparel including the popular t-shirts, hoodies, and fleece jackets. The web address for the Spirit Shop is www.trinityhealthstore.org/Mount_Carmel_College_of_Nursing

Food in Classrooms

Students who bring food/beverages into classrooms are expected remove containers and wrappers and deposit trash in appropriate receptacles. Courteous behavior will help maintain a clean environment. It is everyone’s responsibility to keep campus facilities clean and neat.


Free parking for Mount Carmel College of Nursing (MCCN) students is available in various locations on campus. 

  • All students park in the Employee/Student Garage (corner of West Town St. and South Davis Ave.). Students gain access to this gated garage by swiping their student ID badges at the entrance and exit.
  • Any student found parking in a patient, visitor or handicap spot will be towed at their own expense.

Upon request, MCCN Safety & Security will provide escort service for MCCN students to their parked cars after dark. Students may contact the MCCN receptionist in Marian Hall (614-234-4831).

Parking Violations

Mount Carmel Security Officers will ticket and/or tow student cars as necessary. Towing charges are the responsibility of the student. The Safety and Security Office will send notification of a parking violation to the College for the student’s file. Students receiving more than one ticket may have their cars “booted” or towed. Fines and violations issued by the City of Columbus are the responsibility of the student receiving the ticket.
