About Brennan Library

Brennan Library

At the heart of the Lasell campus sits the Jessie S. Brennan Library, a state-of-the-art information center that provides access to nearly 100,000 items including books, movies, eBooks, audiobooks, streaming video, and more. Patrons may access the library's online resources 24 hours a day from a variety of platforms, both on campus and remotely. The library has plenty of quiet and group study spaces and friendly staff members eager to help every student succeed.

As a member of the Minuteman Library Network, a consortium of 40 local libraries, Brennan Library provides easy access to over six million items, all searchable through the shared online catalog. Borrowers may use any library in the network with the Lasell torch card.

Brennan Library features over 40 computers, as well as three black & white printers, one color printer, and a scanner/copier. For information on printing, see the "Printing on Campus" section of Campus Life's FAQ for undergraduates.
