This research guide focuses on MDC’s humanities collection. Below you'll find subject-relevant titles and databases; useful research tools and services; and information about our library, including how to access its resources.
The arts and humanities define who we are as a people. That is their power—to remind us of what we each have to offer, and what we have in common. To help us understand our history and imagine our future. To give us hope in the moments of struggle and to bring us together when nothing else will.
