The ERC has Relocated!
The The Education Resources Collection (ERC) has relocated to the newly transformed Perkins Periodical Room, a bright, comfortable space on the second floor past the main computer lab. A glass wall divides this room; the ERC collection is located in the front half, while the back portion of the room is designated as quiet study space.
As always, the ERC offers instructional materials for curriculum planning and lesson preparation (preK-12), ELL kits and materials, teacher certification materials, and more. This collection provides resources and services to support Merrimack’s undergraduate and graduate teacher preparation programs, student outreach volunteers, alumni, and professional educators.
All Merrimack students, faculty, and staff are welcome to use the ERC. We invite you to browse and explore this wonderful collection.
Print journals, formerly located in the Perkins Periodicals Room, are now shelved on the 3rd floor. Current magazines and newspapers remain available in the Perkins Periodical Room on the 2nd floor.
Library Open House is a Success!
On Tuesday, September 21st McQuade Library kicked off the semester by hosting a successful Open House. Over one hundred faculty, students,
and staff visited the library’s second floor atrium to meet the staff and learn more about the various student services offered within the
library, including the Center for Academic Enrichment, Information Technology Services, The Mathematics Center, and The Writing Center.
McQuade Library’s tables featured a sampling of materials from the Education Resources
Collection (ERC) and
popular DVDs. Librarians were available to answer questions about databases,
print resources, ebooks, and services such as interlibrary loan.
Congratulations to Computer Science professor
David Toth who won the Nook E-book reader donated by McQuade Library and to student Gabriella Angelini who won the iPod Touch donated by Information
Also, Helene Nicotra of the English Department won a Merrimack sweatshirt raffled off by the Center for Academic Enrichment.
