In the Library


The Donaldson Campus Library is a wonderful place for quiet study and research. Five study tables, two laptop tables, eleven carrels, ten easy chairs, five computers, two printers, a copier, and a scanner await your arrival. With a collection of 10,000+ books, and 90+ journals and magazines, information abounds for all courses of study on this campus.

Your new Airport Campus Library boasts two easy chairs, a study table for four, three computers, one of which is geared for library help, and a printer, as well as books and magazines pertaining to the programs of study on this campus.

All links to services and resources in the menu on the left are available in the libraries Monday through Friday during open hours and most are available off-campus 24/7. We are happy to help you by email, chat or telephone. Leave an email message at any time and we will respond on the next business day.

Book a Librarian for one-on-one research help in the library.

Use your student id (77 . . .) to log into the library catalog. In the catalog, you can renew materials you have checked out, and place holds on materials in HC libraries and affiliate libraries (UM-Missoula, UM-Western and Montana Tech).  Holds can be picked up on either the Donaldson or Airport campus. Books and other materials are checked out for four weeks with two possible renewals. We also check out iPads for two weeks with one possible renewal.


Check the Tutorials page on the library website for the self-paced Library Research Tutorial as well as other helpful tutorials. You will need to log into Moodle with your NetID to access the Library Research Tutorial.

In the Donaldson Library, you will find a Group Study Room equipped with a whiteboard and large flat screen monitor for viewing presentations and DVD’s. Contact us to book this room for two or more students for group study or tutoring.

Also on the Donaldson Campus, community members are welcome to use the library computers and online resources and check out materials. Please bring a photo ID if you wish to apply for a community borrower card.
