How to request an Asnuntuck Community College book from the Asnuntuck Community College Library

 

*Please note under normal circumstances, you would NOT request an ACC book, you would find it on the shelves; however, at present, our shelving area is closed.

**You will receive an email in your official school email that your items are ready to be picked up. Your book(s) will be waiting for you at the Information Desk where the security guards sit. The due dates will be written on the bag as well as stamped on cards in the individual books. Please call ahead to 860-253-3012 as the building is open by appointment only, Monday – Thursday 8:30 am to 9:30 pm and Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Campus information regarding COVID-19 is located here: https://asnuntuck.edu/campus-reopening-info/

***Library staff will be in the building Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9 am to 1 pm and Wednesday 2 pm to 6 pm. For example, if you place a request on Thursday at 2 pm, library staff will not be able to retrieve the book until Monday at 9 am.

 

How to Request a Book

 Go to https://asnuntuck.edu/student-resources/library/ and enter your search in the box. In this case, we will be using Abraham Lincoln. Click Search:

 

In the upper right hand corner, click on Sign In:

 Then click on “Community College signon” and enter your Net ID and password (Just like you were logging in to myCommNet):

 

 The results list will contain books, articles, etc., and you want a book. To limit to just books, click on “Available at ACC” on the left hand side of the page:

 

 HELPFUL HINT: If you want to look at the newest books first, click on Sort by and select Date-newest:

 Look down through the result list to see titles that you may find interesting. Keep in mind that the record should say “Available at” in green. If it does not say this, the book may be checked out, and directions on searching the entire CSCU system for a book are in a separate handout.

In this example, Abraham Lincoln and the Second American Revolution is available at ACC and Team of Rivals is not:

 

 To request the book, click on the title and then the blue request button. (It may take a few seconds for the blue request button to show.)

 

Note that the Pickup Location defaults to Asnuntuck Community College. Normally you could pick ACC or another CSCU institution, but this fall ACC students can only pick up items at ACC. You may also add information, such as “Not Needed After” (in case your project is due soon), and Comments. Click on the green REQUEST option.
