If you cannot find what you need in the Library collection--we can get you materials from other libraries in CT and beyond. Our Interlibrary loan (ILL)service in support of learning, teaching and research is available to all current ACC students, staff and faculty.
This service is also extended as a courtesy to retired ACC staff and faculty. All other Library users in need of interlibrary loan service are asked to contact their local public library. For more information, please read our interlibrary loan policy.
Your suggestions for building our collections are not only welcome but essential. Your suggestions for additions to our collections including books, periodicals/journals, databases and media materials can be submitted via Online Purchase Request
