FRAMINGHAM CAMPUS LIBRARY NEWSLETTER
YOUR ONE CARD IS YOUR LIBRARY CARD
Whether you are enrolled in one class or a full schedule, you need to sign up for a One Card, MassBay’s student ID program. Your One Card is also your library card. On the back of your One Card is a barcode and a number. That is your MassBay Library issued MinuteMan Library Network account number. MassBay Library is part of the MinuteMan Library Network; therefore, you can use your One Card to access resources from our library, all the other MinuteMan Libraries (such as Framingham Public and Framingham State University, among others), and from MinuteMan’s online resources. It is important that you have a MassBay issued library card (One Card) because MassBay students have access to more databases than other MinuteMan members. You must also use a MassBay issued library card to check out reserve books, special collection books and books in the medical section--that is, books with the call number beginning “R”--from MassBay Framingham’s library. In addition to borrowing books from our library you can use the interlibrary loan system to borrow books as well as DVDs, CDs and other materials from within the MinuteMan Network and Interlibrary Loan. With your library card, you can sign up for a MinuteMan account online, which will grant you access to the thousands of articles and other resources in the databases. You can also access OverDrive, the electronic book and audiobook resource. If you have questions about how to access any of these resources, or how to set up your Minute Man account, please ask for help. We can show you the simple steps to accessing the many resources available to you with your library card. The One Card office phone number is (781) 239-2518. A schedule for the One Card office hours is posted at the library circulation desk, as well. Be sure to sign up for a One Card as soon as possible.
To search for titles in the MassBay Library collection, click on the “Find Books” link from the Library Homepage. Be sure to check if your results are found at Wellesley or Framingham.

The number below the barcode is your MassBay Library Card number. Use that to log into your MinuteMan account. You can request materials, access databases from home, and more.
