The McCartney Library offers a variety of resources and services to support Adult Degree Program students. Have a question? Ask a librarian!
Have you identified books or articles that you would like to read, but that the McCartney Library does not own? We are happy to order these items for you from another library. Simply fill out the interlibrary loan form and we will contact you when the items have arrived. If you would like to have the books or articles shipped to your house upon arrival, request this service in the notes/questions section of the Interlibrary Loan form, making sure to include your home address.
Your local public library may also offer interlibrary loan services or have relevant books in their collections.
