The circulating book collection (books that may be taken out of the library with a valid Molloy ID card) are located in the stack rooms within the James E. Tobin Library on the main campus in Rockville Centre. There are two Patron Service points within the library. The primary Patron Service point is in the main Reference Area of the library (the front desk upon entering the library). The second Patron Service point is located on the first floor of the library within Patron Services/Rochelle Sager Media Center. Signage within the library will direct you to these areas.
There is no charge to use circulating collections (books and media); however there are fees for circulating materials that are not returned. Any fees associated with materials not returned to the library are the responsibility of the cardholder.
The circulating collections are available to faculty members, students, administrators and staff of Molloy College.
These materials can be found in the Molloy Catalog and are shelved by Library of Congress call numbers.
Access to Circulating Collections
A valid Molloy ID card is required to check out any circulating material. Patrons without a Molloy ID card will be asked to write information for Patron Services staff member so they can be looked up in the library system to verify they have an active library account. If patron is not in the library system, they will not be permitted to take books out of the library. However, patrons are permitted to use circulating books (books on shelves in the stack rooms within the library) and reference books (use within library). These materials can be found in the Molloy Catalog and are shelved by Library of Congress call numbers.
Please be advised that there is an overnight activation period before being able to use the new ID card in the library. This means that library patrons will be unable to check out any physical materials. Databases and E-Reserves, however, may be accessed immediately on or off campus.
ID cards may be obtained at Public Safety, 516.323.3500.
ILLiad is a "paperless" and fully automated Interlibrary Loan system is available to faculty members, students, administrators and staff of Molloy College.

For articles, patrons will be able to retrieve .pdf copies of the material directly from within their ILLiad account, as well as check due dates and / or request an extension on a book.
Before initiating the request, think about the following:
