Welcome Abbott Lawrence Academy Students

This is a guide to help ALA students get started using McQuade Library!

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 DVDs: 

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

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 :
