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.
