Emmanuel d'Alzon Library

Faculty may borrow library materials from the circulating collection for the current semester.  Some materials, such as movies, have different loan periods. You may borrow up to 50 items at a time. Items may be renewed online or by contacting the Front Desk at 508.767.7135.

Although you hold a valid ID from the University, you must be registered in our Library database, in order to borrow materials from the Library. If you have not registered, please ask for a form to be sent to your office for you to complete and return.  Please contact the Front Desk at 508.767.7135, or come in to the Library.

Your borrowing privileges are active for 5 years, as long as you are affiliated with the University. You may renew your registration at any time after your privileges expire, by showing a valid University ID at the Front Desk.

Area Libraries

Faculty (and students) may borrow directly from libraries in the Academic and Research Collaborative (ARC). Please obtain an ARC direct borrowing card at the d'Alzon Library Front Desk, in order to borrow directly from an ARC member library.

Interlibrary Loan

Assumption University students, faculty, and staff may request materials that are not held by the d’Alzon Library through the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan system, which allows users to place, track, and renew requests online. Most articles are delivered electronically to your ILLiad account within 3 days. Books that are available locally will often arrive in just a few days, but it is best to plan on 7-10 days to receive other books. If you have questions about Interlibrary Loan, please contact Vivienne Anthony at 508.767.7291.
