Borrowing Library Materials

Library resources are available to the college community and also to residents of Atlantic and Cape May counties. The book collection includes more than 70,000 books and 250,000 digital books. The library subscribes to magazines in areas of general interest and areas of study.

Students can check out and return materials, including those from the Atlantic County Library System, the public library, at any of the campus libraries. The Atlantic Cape library card is integrated with the student ID card. Stop by any of the circulation desks with your student ID to activate your library card.

Books, articles and other materials not owned by the college library can be obtained for students, staff and faculty, free of charge, from libraries throughout the United States, using the library's interlibrary loan service. Ask about this service at the reference desk or email library@atlantic.edu.

Thousands of full text newspapers, magazines, and scholarly journals are available through our online databases. In addition, we have digital subscriptions to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Print copies The Press of Atlantic City, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and many other titles are available in each of the libraries. The Chronicle of Philanthropy is kept at the Mullock Family Library.

Borrowing Library Books

Students can borrow library books from the libraries and return them by the due date or request an extension. If items are not returned, a Hold will be placed on the student’s college account.
