Environmental Science

A guide to research in the area of environmental science


Books located in MCC's General Collection can be checked out from either the Elsner Library at the Southern & Dobson (SD) campus or the Library at Red Mountain (RM). Below is a sampling of some books from MCC's general collection. There are many other environmental science books available. Search the catalog for more books.

Copy Machines

You can make copies for 10 cents a page (cash only).

Copy machines are located on each floor.


Reference books do not circulate but can be used in in the library. Books available at the Paul A. Elsner Library on the Southern and Dobson campus are indicated by S&D. Books available at the Red Mountain campus are indicated by RM. Below is a selection of the books that are available at both libraries.


Use the MCC Library catalog to search for books owned by MCC libraries.

Not finding what you are looking for in the MCC catalog? Then try searching the Maricopa Community College District library catalog. Items that circulate (i.e. general collection books and other materials) can be requested and picked up at the college library of your choice. All you need is your MEID and password (usually the last four digits of your phone number.) Please allow several days for the items to arrive. For more information see our Interdistrict loan policies (IDL).
