Alumnae & Visitors

The primary mission of McCain Library is to support the information and research needs of our current students, faculty and staff. We also regularly serve alumnae, family of faculty and staff, ARCHE interlibrary use patrons and special guests of the college. Library privileges extended to alumnae, visitors, and other "guest borrowers" are intended to supplement the resources available through the guest's own employer, school or public library. Visitors under the age of 12 are not allowed in the library due to pandemic vaccination protocols.

In compliance with campus Covid protocols, non-ASC visitors to McCain Library are asked to wear a mask, introduce themselves at the Circulation Desk, present proof of COVID vaccination and sign the visitor register log each time they use the library.

Librarians are available on weekdays to assist with locating and retrieving resources. To ensure a librarian is able to assist with your research needs, call 404.471.6096 or email

To facilitate the onsite use of materials we provide photocopy machines and scanners.
