  • Check Out

    Students and faculty have the ability to check out a wide variety of materials including books, DVDs, CDs, laptops, headphones and more. All you have to do is present your valid student ID or faculty ID badge and you are good to go!


     

    Check Out a Laptop

    We have laptops available for students to check out and use in the library. If you are interested please bring your valid student ID and license or state ID to the circulation desk at the library. Laptops loan terms are restricted to 5 hours a day.


     

    Get a library card

    Checking out materials is now easier than ever. Your valid student ID now functions as your library card. If you are a Morton student but do not yet have a student ID just bring your current class schedule to the Student Success Center and they will issue you an ID card.

    Faculty may use their ID badges to check out books as well


     

    I-Share

    I-Share is library consortium Morton joined in the winter of 2013. One of the great things about being a part of I-Share is that Morton students and faculty members now can borrow materials from 80 different academic libraries and institutions!

    To begin borrowing you must first create an account which just takes a few moments. To start just click this link, and fill out the information requested. Be sure to select that you are affiliated with Morton College in the pull down menu.

    Your borrow ID is the seven digit number on the front of your student ID card. Faculty members please call the library to obtain your borrower ID number.

    Please get in touch if you have any questions during any step of the process. (708) 656-8000 ext. 2321


     

    Printing

    Computers in the library are assigned with a unique number printed on a white sticker located on the monitor.  This number can also be found  by clicking the Windows Start button. Once you print your document, go to the two computers against the windows near the Help Desk, and find your number on either screen. Click print, select the correct document, insert the requested change, and click print again.

    Color documents and papers with images may take longer. Please ask a librarian if you have any questions.


     

    Research Help

    There are lots of ways we can help you get started with your research. We have resource guides, lots of books and online materials for your use, and our librarians are on hand to help you find information that will help.


     

    student Study Rooms

    Current Morton College students can use our study rooms if you leave your student ID with a librarian at the circulation desk. Rooms are available for 2 hours at a time with a single renewal provided no one is waiting.

    We have two larger rooms that are reserved for groups of three or more. All members of the group must be present when the room reservation begins.
