  • Four Facts About the Library


    Welcome back to a new school year! Not sure what the library can do for you? Here are four things you may or may not have known:

    1. You can search the library catalog anytime, anywhere. The Maret library catalog is online, and you can search it from school, home, or anywhere you have an Internet connection. Check it out here: Maret Library Catalog

    2. You can access high-quality databases for research at home or school. Maret students and faculty members have access to dozens of high-quality databases, and can use them at home or at school. Check out the full list: Online Databases

    3. You can check out a Kindle loaded with books. We have about 50 Kindles available in the library for checkout and hundreds on Kindle books. Just stop by the circulation desk to look through the list of books we have available and get them put on a device to take home.

    4. You can check out books from American University. We have a lending agreement with AU, which allows students and faculty members to request AU books and have them delivered to the Maret library, usually within 48 hours. Get more information about how it works: AU Lending
