The Mitchell College Library exists primarily to support the teaching and research needs of Mitchell faculty and students. Its collections are necessarily built to support the College curriculum.
The College welcomes public use of all resources on an in-house basis free of charge. The Library also participates as a lending institution regionally through the Libraries Online consortium (LION), of which it is a member; statewide through the Connecticut Digital Library’s interlibrary loan system, ReQuest; and nationally through the cooperative worldwide resource catalog, OCLC.
Policies for specific patrons can be found using the tabs at the top of this page.
Those who use the Library and its resources agree to observe all Library policies, to be respectful of others’ rights in using the Library, and respectful of Library facilities and property.
Community patrons are not granted access to the Library’s electronic resources due to restrictions imposed by use agreement with outside vendors.
UNH students and faculty attending class(es) at the Mitchell College campus will be assigned a username and password for computer access, if it is required for course-related activities. Please contact the UNH program coordinator for details.
The Mitchell College Library does not currently extend interlibrary loan privileges to its Community Patrons.
Community Patrons are encouraged to utilize their home public libraries for interlibrary loan.
