Borrowers must present a current institutional ID with an appropriate library registration barcode.
Borrowers are responsible for all materials charged out in his or her name.
Borrowing privileges in our consortia are extended to currently enrolled Emmanuel Students, Faculty, Staff and Administration only. These privileges allow access to the libraries of Fenway Libraries Online, The Colleges of the Fenway, The Fenway Library Consortium, and the use of Emmanuel College's Interlibrary Loan services.
Emmanuel alumni may register for a Library barcode that grants borrowing privileges of print material in the collection of Cardinal Cushing Library. Alumni borrowing privileges do not extend to other libraries in the Fenway Libraries Online consortium.
As an alumnus, you are welcome to use our databases on campus in the Library. (Our licensing does not extend to off-campus access for alumni.)
We continue to provide reference services to our alumni by phone, email, or in person.
Ask a reference librarian about alternative public library access to electronic resources that you may need to access remotely.
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum - An Emmanuel ID now gains admission to regular hours of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum for the entire Emmanuel community. The Emmanuel ID does not gain access to special events.
In addition, the Library has one guest pass for every day the Museum is open. Guest passes provide free admission for one person when accompanied by the holder of a valid Emmanuel ID. These passes are available to the Emmanuel community on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are planning a visit to the Gardner, call us in advance with the date of your visit and we will reserve the guest pass for you.
Museum passes: Museum of Fine Arts - Emmanuel students have free admission to the MFA with their Emmanuel IDs. MFA Museum passes for Emmanuel Faculty and Staff are available in the Library to be checked out for a 24-hour period. - [http://www.mfa.org].
The borrower is financially liable and will lose both circulation and reserve borrowing privileges for any overdue items lent from Emmanuel College, any FLO/FLC library, or through Interlibrary Loan using his/her library account.
Items will be "assumed lost" if they are not returned or renewed before their due date.
A $60.00 per item holding fee will be placed on these "assumed lost" items. The holding fee can be removed by renewing or returning the item or items immediately.
If the "assumed lost" item is not returned or renewed, a replacement fine will then be billed to the borrower’s record. The borrower will be billed the $60.00 per item holding fee plus any additional replacement charges that exceed this cost. This bill will be reflected on the borrower’s student financial statement. Unpaid library fees prevent borrowers from registering for classes, obtaining grades and transcripts, and graduating.
Please contact the Office of Student Financial Services for financial details at: (617) 735-9938.
If an item is returned after the borrower has been issued a replacement bill, the borrower will receive credit for the replacement costs per item.
Once an overdue issue has been resolved, the borrower will regain his/her borrowing privileges at the library.
Please note, regaining borrowing privileges and removing fees from a borrower’s record will take two to three business days for processing.
