Library Hours

Mount Madonna Institute holds a varied collection of ancient source texts. Students are offered access to the on-campus Institute library during the scheduled weekend hours. (Classes meet one three or four-day weekend per month, starting Thursday or Friday mornings at 9:30 am and ending Sundays at 5 pm). Students login to the online library in Populi and place a hold on an item. They pick it up when they are on-campus once a month for the class.

Friends of the UCSC Library

To improve the library resources available to help the C-AP and MA students with their scholarly research activity, MMI purchases "Friends of the UCSC Library Cards (FOTL)" from the UC Santa Cruz library. The FOTL card allows borrowing library materials with very few restrictions and provides access to the online article database ProQuest Research Library. There are many journals relevant to Ayurveda studies in the ProQuest Research Library.
