Camden-Carroll Library

Camden-Carroll Library is the information center of Morehead State University. The library's collection of books, journals, newspapers and government documents, in both print and electronic format, support the University's curriculum and provide a wealth of materials to meet students' research, recreational and personal enrichment needs. The library has public workstations located throughout the building to afford students access to a large variety of Web-based resources, including the most relevant online journals and databases.

The goal of the Camden-Carroll Library is to promote information literacy skills, which include the ability to find, evaluate and use information effectively and ethically. The reference staff provides students with one-on-one help searching for and finding materials in the library and online, in person or remotely through virtual chat or email. Instructional services staff provides subject and assignment specific instruction for individual classes and also conducts building tours. The library also offers two courses to help students improve these skills: LSIM 101: Introduction to Library Research and LSIM 201: Living in an Information Society. Through its interlibrary loan services, the library participates in state and national resource-sharing networks to deliver materials not held in Camden-Carroll Library. This includes print materials and electronic delivery of certain items.

The Regional Campus Library Services office is responsible for providing research, document delivery and instructional services to faculty and students in any of MSU's regional campuses, distance learning or internet programs.

The Learning Resource Center (LRC) is a multi-media center containing computer software, video recordings and DVDs, audio cassettes and CDs, kits and teaching aids, as well as children's literature and a preschool-grade 12 collection of textbooks and curriculum guides.

The Learning Technology Lab consists of workstations providing hardware and software for creating computer graphics, websites and presentations. The lab includes color scanners, digital cameras, video capture/edit capability, color printers and a wide variety of software packages.
