Forty members of the Merrimack College Community were honored at the Sixth Annual Tolle Lege Reception in McQuade Library on Tuesday, February 3rd. This annual celebration recognizes and celebrates the research and scholarship of Merrimack faculty, administrators and alumni.

The program included presentations by Mathematics professor Dana Rowland, Management professor Jane Parent, Religious Studies Professor Mark Allman, Father Jim Wenzel, and Media Instructional Services Director Kevin Salemme.

All authors participated in a signing ceremony, and their publications were added to the library's Tolle Lege collection which resides in the Reference Room.

This event was sponsored by McQuade Library and the Center for Augustinian Study and Legacy.

McQuade Library RECYCLES!

Merrimack Recycles

There is a new addition to McQuade Library – RECYCLE BINS!

Located on all 4 floors near the traditional black trash containers, the new recycle bins hold glass, plastic, aluminum and metal containers.

Follow the directions on the posters next to the bins. All recyclable materials can be placed in one container.

Paper is not allowed in this bin -- please continue to use the designated blue bins located throughout the library to recycle your unwanted paper.

Student and staff volunteers empty the bins and place the recyclables in an on-campus trasfer bin.

Then, the materials are taken to the Institution Recycling Network (IRN) in Concord, New Hampshire.

These recycle bins are now found in many dorms and in many academic buildings.

More information about Merrimack College's new, more comprehensive recycling program can be found here.

This is one of the many projects supported by the Campus Environmental Sustainability Initiative, a group of students, staff, administrators, faculty and alumni who are striving to make Merrimack College a more environmentally sustainable institution of higher learning.

New Database

Beyond the Written Word

Are you working on a poster, presentation, or film? We know that assignments come in many forms. And even the traditional research paper can be improved with some visual interest. Take a look at our newest database: AP Images. Instead of journal articles and scholarly references, it contains photos, graphics, and sound clips from the Associated Press, all available for academic use in your paper or presentation.

So if you need a company logo for your management presentation, a graph of foreclosures across the US for an economics paper, an audio clip of Hilary Rodham Clinton for polical science, or even a random collection of things that are blue for your graphic design project, check out the AP Images database.

Available to current Merrimack College students, faculty & staff ONLY.

Join our Student Library Advisory Committee!


After several successful meetings last year, the Student Library Advisory Committee will be meeting again on Tuesday February 24th at 5:00pm in the basement seminar room. As in the past, free pizza and refreshments will be served.

Topics scheduled for discussion include DVD selection, lighting, furniture, and graphic novels. Students attending the meeting will be asked to share their thoughts on these issues. Information gathered during the meeting will be used to inform future improvement efforts.

Input provided by students last year led to changes in the noise policy, improved wireless support for computers running Windows Vista, and implementation of several changes to better accommodate students, such as making computers in the Alden Lab available during finals.

Previous and new members alike are encouraged to attend and can sign up here.
