  • General Privileges

Alumni have access to the libraries' website, physical collections, and resources at all campuses, as well as research and reference assistance. Because of vendor restrictions, use of subscription databases and other electronic resources are limited to on-campus use only. Please visit a library if you need to access full-text articles.

  • Borrowing Materials

Alumni may check out circulating library books, and you will need to have an Alumni Card to do so. The usual borrowing period is three weeks and a limit of three items at any one time, with one renewal period of another three weeks. 

A library fine of more than $8.00 results in your borrowing privileges being blocked until the fine is paid.

Alumni may not use the Interlibrary Loan service.

  • Alumni card

The Alumni Relations Office is located on the Dobbs Ferry Campus in Verrazzano Hall, Room 26. For additional information about the Alumni Relations Office call (914) 674-7759 or email

  • Access to Resources in the Libraries 

Wifi is available via our wireless network “Mavericks-WiFi." In order to access the network the visitor must accept Mercy College’s Terms of Service agreement before being allowed onto the internet.

All the libraries computers now require username and password logins. Library staff can supply alumni with a visitor ID and password, which will allow access to the libraries’ resources.

  • Off-Campus Access to Subscription Databases

Alumni cannot access our subscription databases and other electronic resources from off campus because of restrictions by our vendors.
