Find Books, E-books, and DVDs

NOBLE Catalog

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. 

Searching for books, ebooks, and DVDs

Merrimack College is the default search location- this will only show you what is available at McQuade. 

Search other Libraries:

Select "NOBLE (All Libraries)" from the list of locations to see materials in other libraries 

  • Use your library barcode number and library password to request available items from any of the NOBLE libraries. Items are sent directly to the McQuade Library.

Search for Ebooks:

Change the format type to "E-book" to only view materials that are available digitally

  • Ebooks cannot be borrowed from other libraries, so make sure the ebook title you find has a green "Access for Merrimack College" link:

Search for DVDs: 

Change the format type to "DVD" to search for films  

 

Search Outside McQuade: 

You can also borrow books and other physical resources from libraries across Massachusetts using the Commonwealth Catalog. 

This catalog searches beyond the libraries in NOBLE, to the majority of the libraries throughout the state. Materials will arrive faster than books found in WorldCat, but can still take more than a week to arrive so please plan accordingly.
