MHC Libraries is currently in the process of migrating to OCLC WorldShare ILS system. This means leaving a long-term partnership with the University of Lethbridge; however, the new system will allow MHC to streamline workflows and explore new initiatives.
MHC is participating in the ILAAP pilot project by using the assessment tool in library information literacy classes. The library continues to provide a number of popular services and activities including individual student appointments, One Community One Card (reciprocal borrowing with Shortgrass Library System), iPads for loan, a giant Scrabble board, draws for Good Food Box Day, and events like Shakespeare in the Library, Human Library, and story time for daycare children.
