Library Society Members: Help! How do I...?

Resources and services available to Library Society Members.

What can I find?

Library Society members can borrow a total of 6 items (books and popular reading) at a time.  You will need to be sure that you bring your library ID and that your library registration is up to date.

 

Books? Click here to access cataLION, our online catalog.

Articles? Library Society members may use the databases  that do not have a login required symbol next to their database descriptions. Our contracts do not allow off-campus access for non-students, faculty or staff.

Quiet space? Try the library.

To kick back & relax? Borrow some DVDs or popular reading. Check out the library collection on the main floor.

We are open over 100 hours per week!

Keep My Library Account Active

You will need to annually re-register with the library. 

Anual membership id currently set at $25/year and any member of your immediate household card that you designate can use the card (ID may be requested). 

To obtain a card or re-register an account, you will be asked to:

  • Bring a type of photo ID card
  • If not a drivers license, bring another ID that verifies your address

You will receive a red library ID card that can be used to check out materials from the library.

Obtain Other Services

Reference support is available to all Library Society members by calling 610-921-7211 or emailing libraryref@albright.eduu .  The Albright Library participates in a 24/7 reference desk service, AskHerePA, that you can access.

We highly recommend that you become a member of your local public library system and use the journal databases and interlibrary loan (ILL) services offered by them since access to subecription databases and ILL services are restricted to current students.
