Resources & Services: Home

Our people are your best resources.

We believe our staff are your best resources!  You are always welcome and are encouraged to come into any of the CMC libraries or learning commons to get help, use our resources, and work with our staff.  At Steamboat, that means you can come to one place for your research, writing and tutoring needs.  And oftentimes we even have cookies or treats for you...


Need help finding sources?  Not exactly sure what a peer-reviewed article is?  Stop by the library, and we can help you out!  Don't have time to make it up here?  You can always make an appointment with a librarian, email Jonathan at, or go here for some tips.

Tutoring happens in-person and online for students who are here on our Steamboat Campus.  Libby Foster is our Tutoring Coordinator and she is here to help!  Contact her with any questions or scheduling issues and she will help you get what you need! 

The tutoring schedule for both in-person and online tutors is located at

Community patrons i.e. anyone who is not taking a CMC course or who does not work for CMC are very welcome in our library in-person to explore and use our physical resources.  Our community members can be issued a library card to check out any of our items other than our technology items and/or reserve items (although community members may be permitted to use those items in the library depending on their availability and student demand).   

Because our databases require authentication via a Basecamp login, the only way a community member can access our databases - and only from campus - is for this small selection of databases that are available via IP authentication.  This list is currently found at:
