Mission Statement

The Mission of the Learning Commons is to promote student success and persistence by providing resources, connections, and support.  We value professionalism, information literacy, independent learning, and partnerships with students, faculty, and the community.

Who We Are

Library Circulation Desk Photo The Library is a student-friendly center for research, study, and casual reading resources. In addition to print books, journals, and DVDs, the Library offers 24/7 online access to the collections of libraries throughout the state of Maine, as well as a growing collection of electronic books, encyclopedias, journals, magazines, and newspapers.
Tutoring Check-In Area Photo Tutoring Services offers drop-in tutoring for all currently enrolled students. Faculty, staff and peer tutors provide tutoring in accounting, math, science, writing and computer applications. Resources to support college success skills such as time management and test taking are available via workshops and online tutorials.
Writing Center Photo The Writing Center provides assistance with writing assignments from all courses, not just English. Make an appointment or drop in for a 30-minute session with a peer or faculty tutor who will get you on course to revise your draft and improve your writing. Workshops are offered on specific writing topics such as how to paraphrase and writing effective thesis statements.
Midcoast LC Photo The L. L. Bean Learning & Health Science Center is the Midcoast hub for academic support and services. Spaces are currently available for Tutoring, Advising, Testing, Computing, and Studying - and a Reference Librarian is in the Library every Wednesday and Thursday. Please check our LC branch sites for Mid Coast schedules and specific services.
