Frequently Asked Questions
Any current Stonehill students, staff or faculty may borrow items by presenting their Stonehill ID card to the circulation desk in the library. In addition, students from SMCL schools (Bridgewater State University, University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth and Wheaton College) are eligible to borrow materials by presenting their college IDs. They will then be issued a special borrower card.
Alumni may borrow materials with a library-issued card. Please contact the Circulation staff for more details (508-565-1313).
Most books, Videos, CDs, and DVDs are allowed to borrowed from the library. However, certain materials are restricted to use within the library. Reference books, material on reserve, books located within library offices and journals and newspapers can NOT be checked out of the library.
Once you have selected the item that you would like to check out, go to the Circulation Desk. This desk is located to the left as you walk in the main entrance to the library.
You can either come to the Circulation Desk in the library or you can call the library at 508-565-1313 (x1313) and ask to renew the item. Please be aware that if another patron has requested the item that you want to renew, you will not be allowed to renew the item. Students may only renew items 3 times.
You can review your circulation record in our Online Catalog. From the catalog main menu, select Your Library Account. Then type in your name and barcode number from your ID. You must type in your name exactly as it appears on your ID. As for your barcode number, you want to type in the 14 digits that are sandwiched by the A and B. For example, the number on your ID may read A27689000000000B. However, you only want to type in 27689000000000. If you have any difficulties, please call the Circulation Desk at 508-565-1313.
