We are proud to share that seven of our student library assistants are graduating this May! We look forward to seeing them all again and to what their futures hold.
How can I access McQuade’s Library Resources online?
To access McQuade's online resources, it is best to find resources through the library's website.
Here off-campus users will be taken through the library's authentication/proxy system and be asked to enter their Merrimack username and password, the same you would use for MyMack or Blackboard.
If you have problems contact a librarian by emailing email@example.com or if open, use the Chat box at the library's homepage or on most research guides.
McQuade Library is thrilled to collaborate with nursing professors to work with FYE nursing sections and in the creation of video lessons for nursing students. Librarian CJ Wong is creating videos to help nursing students navigate the McQuade website, the Nursing Research Guide, and databases to complete their assignments.

McQuade's Virtual Library is always open and our staff continue to support remote learning in many ways. Librarians have connected students with electronic textbooks, helped faculty use databases and streaming media, offered numerous virtual library workshops and research appointments, produced videos, troubleshooted remote access issues, and more.
Librarians created a Continuity of Library Services Guide which offers Information on getting library books, articles, and research help while the campus is closed.
