The Mount Aloysius College Library offers a wide array of services to meet the needs of its many college patrons. The following services are available to all MAC students, faculty and staff through the College Library. Interlibrary Loan
The Library’s collection of DVDs and CDs are kept at the Circulation Desk. These items may be checked out by students for up to three days at a time with no renewals. Faculty and staff may check out these items for one week with renewals upon request.
A television equipped with a VHS and DVD player is located in Study Room #1 (first floor) for use by those individuals who wish to view items that have been placed on Reserve and which do not circulate. Check with the Circulation Desk for this service.
Students may borrow laptop computers. The loan period is seven days (external) or for two hours at a time (in-house). Copies of the laptop policy form are available at the Circulation desk.
This equipment is available at the Circulation Desk.
Reserves are items (books, articles, videos, etc.) that Mount Aloysius students need for class assignments. Professors have asked that these materials be placed on reserve in a special area behind the circulation desk. Reserve materials are assigned special loan periods. They are: two hour library-use-only, overnight reserve, three-day reserve, one-week reserve and thirty-day reserve. A Mount Aloysius College student ID is required to check out reserves.
Practice Presentation Room – This room features a 42-inch monitor that can be connected to a laptop and which will display whatever is on the laptop’s screen. Students can use this room to display presentations, pdfs, or even movies. Many use it to practice group or individual presentations. Like the study rooms, this room is available on a first come, first served basis.
Study Rooms – There are three quiet rooms on the first floor of the Library. These rooms are ideal for students who need to study together or who are working on a class project. Study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis with faculty receiving first priority. Students cannot reserve these rooms in advance. No sign-in for the room is required.
Please note: the practice presentation and study rooms are sometimes used for testing sessions, Learning Commons workshops, Supplemental Instruction Sessions, and meetings for faculty and staff. When possible, staff will place signs outside rooms that are reserved for these purposes.
