Happy July 4th Holiday Weekend! Have fun and stay safe.
McCain Library and Agnes Scott College will be closed from Friday, July 3 through Monday, July 6.
The library will reopen on Tuesday, July 7 at 8:00 a.m.
Students, if you’re looking for study space over the holiday, remember that your ASC ID will admit you to Room G-11 on McCain’s Ground Floor (use the card scanner at the exterior door facing Alston). And our online resources are available 24/7 at http://www.agnesscott.edu/library/.
Summer Session II begins today! Welcome to all the students who will be taking:
- Anthropology 101
- Biology 223
- Business 225 & 240
- Chemistry 220
- English 230
- French 202 & 232
- Psychology 102
McCain Library is here to help if you have any research questions! Be sure to check out our LibGuides.
We combined the best of all our past Writers’ Festival LibGuides into one comprehensive guide: http://libguides.agnesscott.edu/ascwritersfest. Now you can find a list of all the guest writers in one place.
Also, we have brief biographies of each of the guest writers since 2009. As soon as we know the names of the 2016 guest writers we will update the guide to ensure students, faculty, staff, and visitors have all the information they need to access the work of these authors and be prepare to ask great questions at the event.
This guide was created by Morgan Briles ’14 who is serving as the Project Manager for the LibGuides Transition this summer. She is responsible for consolidating our guides and helping us prep for a migration to the latest version of LibGuides.
If you are a former student assistant, librarian, intern, or volunteer who worked on one of our Writers’ Festival LibGuides be sure to check the guide for links to a PDF copy of the guide you created. It should be a great addition to your portfolio of work!

Even though it’s a quieter time of year on campus, librarians remain on call to assist you in locating needed information or research materials. Students in the summer courses BIO 222, CHE 150, MAT 115 and PSY 101 should be aware that the expensive required textbooks for those classes are on reserve at the circulation desk and may be borrowed for two hours at a time to read in the library.
After library hours, Agnes Scott College students may use their ID cards on the wall scanners at the exterior Ground Floor doors facing Alston Campus Center to enter the ETC Hallway, then to unlock McCain G-11. This classroom provides quiet study space and WiFi access for personal laptop computers when the main library is closed. Our online informational and research guides, LibGuides at libguides.agnesscott.edu, offer research guidance 24/7.
As a continuation of a successful pilot project in the spring, McCain Library will have at least one copy of these expensive course textbooks on reserve for students taking Summer I courses.
- These textbooks may be used for two hours at a time in McCain Library.
- They may not be taken out of McCain Library.
- Ask for them by title at the Circulation Desk.
Note: this service does not include online supplementary tools, CDs, workbooks or lab manuals – just the required textbook.
