It has long been apparent that no library could possibly collect all of the materials needed for use by all of its users. In order to alleviate this problem, the Alumnae Library provides an InterLibrary Loan Service to all users. Through this program, most materials that have not been collected can be provided from another library. The titles and subjects of the materials borrowed through this service are carefully observed. Subjects or titles, which are frequently borrowed, are given priority for further evaluation and possible acquisition by the Alumnae Library.
We are a private Catholic coeducational liberal arts college founded in 1928 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Springfield, Massachusetts. Elms College is located in Chicopee, Massachusetts, and grants associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees.
