If you search the catalog or databases and find books or articles that you want that the library does not have access to, you can request them using interlibrary loan (ILL). It may take a day or several days for the materials to arrive, so please plan accordingly.
Use this ILL FORM to request books and articles. Library staff will contact you when the materials arrive and you can pick them up at the Circulation Help Desk (1st floor of McQuade) free of charge. If you requested an article, library staff will send it to you via e-mail.
This is a FREE service, so please take advantage of it while you're here at Merrimack!
Use the NOBLE Catalog to find books, e-books, dvds, and streaming videos from McQuade, as well as the 26 other libraries in our consortium (NOBLE). If another library has something you want, request it through interlibrary loan (ILL) at no charge and pick it up at the Help Desk on the first floor when it arrives.
The library uses the Library of Congress Classification system. Because books are organized by subject, you can browse the stacks and find books on the same topic shelved together. At McQuade, call numbers A-H are located on the 2nd floor. Call numbers J-Z are located on the lower level
Most material in sociology falls in the HM-HV range on the second floor as follows:HM (General Sociology)
