Q. Who May Access/Borrow Library Resources

Answer

Who May Borrow Library Materials


Currently Enrolled Students, Faculty, and Staff

Circulating library materials may be borrowed by any member of the SNHU community with their SNHU ID card. Currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff whose center of record or address are in Manchester, NH, may pick up requested materials at the Shapiro Library Information Desk. Off-Campus Library Services (OCLS) are provided for currently enrolled COCE undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff whose centers of record and mailing addresses are outside of Manchester, NH.

Alumni

SNHU Alumni may also borrow books and audio books by using their SNHU Alumni Association ID card. Bring your Alumni card with you to the Library for activation and a barcode number. For more information, contact the Information Desk at 603.645.9605 or circulation@snhu.edu.

For more information please see the FAQ: Can alumni access library resources? SNHU Alumni may access a selection of databases containing full-text journals, magazines and newspapers by logging into your Alumni Online Community account. Due to licensing agreements and contracts, remote or off-site access to all the library’s electronic resources is only available to currently affiliated faculty, staff and students.  While on campus, Alumni are welcome to use the many licensed electronic resources within the library upon presentation of a SNHU Alumni Association ID card. For more information, contact the Reference Desk at 603.626.9100 ext. 2161 or ask@snhu.libanswers.com.

Consortia Members

Patrons from libraries participating in the NHCUC consortium who present a valid ID from their home institution may borrow up to 5 books at a time. For more information, contact the Information Desk at 603.645.9605 or circulation@snhu.edu.

Others

Those who do not otherwise qualify to borrow Shapiro Library materials may apply for a special borrower card. The card carries a $100.00 annual fee and provides in-library computer access and book borrowing privileges. For more information, contact the Information Desk at 603.645.9605 or circulation@snhu.edu.
