The McQuade Library is the academic center of Merrimack College. For most of the day the facility is open to the public. All are welcome to enter the building and use the facilities; however, priority for services will be given to Merrimack community members. During evening and overnight hours access is limited to Merrimack community members: which includes Merrimack students, faculty, staff, and administrators. Guests may be admitted if accompanied by a MackCard holder.
