Patron Services

The library on the campus at Avon Street is open seven days a week  during the academic term and provides quiet and comfortable study space for students and other Antioch community members. There is wireless internet access in the library and students are welcome to use their own laptops, or one of the library's computers (please note that there is no printing from library computers). Food and beverages are allowed in the library although we ask that care be taken near our computers!

All of the library's services and collections are designed to support the low-residency, adult graduate student. Our services equally serve students at cluster sites, on-campus weekly, or off-campus, finishing dissertations.

Research Resources

Students have access both on and off-campus (via password) to more than one hundred research databases and thousands of full text journals, in addition to an in-house collection of books, journals, and other materials selected specifically to support AUNE's academic programs. Research Guides list resources by subject area and will tell you which ones are most appropriate for your topic.

Personalized Research Support

Reference librarians can assist with all aspects of conducting research: advising on framing, narrowing, or focusing your research inquiry; suggesting appropriate research resources; constructing database searches; and getting from research results to full-text. Librarians are available for individual consultation, group project consultation, regularly scheduled workshops and help sessions, and in-class research support. Our reference librarians provide research support by phone and email, as well as in person.

Tutorials

Brief online tutorials (under five minutes) are available for various components of research, from logging in to databases to finding the full-text of articles.

AUNE Library provides academic support services for faculty in all programs.

Reviewing course needs with the librarians every semester will ensure that we have acquired all the materials students will need to successfully complete the course.

Database Access

Our contracts with database vendors allow us to provide access only to currently registered students. Graduates of AUNE wishing to use research databases are urged to consider the following options: Local libraries Public libraries usually offer their patrons access to various online databases. State university and college libraries often make their resources available to local residents. Some private university and college libraries provide on-site database access to guest users. Professional organizations often provide their members with access to research databases. APA, for example, offers various pricing options for access to PsycINFO and their other online research products, as well as 24-hour periods of access for very reasonable rates. Free access databases There are many freely available online databases. ERIC, a comprehensive index to education materials, and PubMed, an index provided by the National Library of Medicine, are just two examples.

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan service is available only to current students of Antioch University New England. The library does not provide interlibrary loan services to graduates of AUNE. Alumni and other guest library users are encouraged to utilize the interlibrary loan services of their local public library.
