Library Services

Reinsch Library and the Ballston Center Library Extension are open to alumni. Access to electronic databases, full-text journals, and other resources is available on campus only. Priority use of facilities is given to Marymount students, faculty, and staff; access may be limited to these users during exams and heavy use times.

Borrowing Material

Marymount alumni receive borrowing privileges by presenting a valid Alumni card and photo identification. Alumni Association cards may be obtained from the Alumni Office during regular business hours and will be mailed to Marymount graduates on request. There is no charge for an Alumni card.
