   MCCC's Library 

The club holds a modest number of books, a larger number of conservation, management and research documents, and many journals and newsletters kindly sent in by fellow Australian caving organisations. These are all available for members' use and free loan for very reasonable periods of time. The Librarian maintains and catalogues the collection, and keeps a loans log. Most items are irreplaceable, hence it is expected that borrowers return items in original condition and in timely fashion.
