Off-Campus Access

In order to comply with licensing agreements and/or copyright law, access to many of Mercyhurst Libraries' electronic resources is limited to current students and employees of Mercyhurst University. If you click on a link to one of our databases, electronic journals, or electronic reserves from an off-campus computer, you will be prompted to enter a username and password. Your username and password for accessing library resources are the same as the username and password used for your Mercyhurst email account. Keep in mind that, while your username is always the same, you may have different passwords for your various campus accounts. Be sure you use your email account password.


Room Reservations

Group Study Rooms

In addition to the open and individual study spaces, Ridge Library has group study rooms with media capabilities so you can study as a group or watch a video without worrying about disturbing others. To reserve in advance, call 725-6100.

Great Room

Throughout the year the Great Room and adjoining study rooms are generally available for student study use. However these rooms are also used during the year for conferences, meetings, and special events.
