Corporate Memberships

The University of Massachusetts Lowell Libraries offer resources and services to corporations in the Greater Lowell area through a Corpoarte Membership program..

We welcome and encourage our corporate neighbors to take advantage of our vast array of resources and services in the areas of Business & Finance, Science, Engineering & Technology, the Social Sciences and Humanities.

POLICY: The Corporate Membership provides borrowing privileges, interlibrary loan services and assistance from expert subject specialists with literature searches to any designated employee of the company during the annual subscription. Services are offered on a cost-recovery basis.

LIBRARY CARDS are available to any corporation or organization for an annual fee of $200. The annual fee entitles the organization to three cards. Cards allow borrowing privileges from the UMass Lowell Libraries of up to five books per card for a period of 28 days with one renewal. Extended renewal may be possible if the book is not on a waiting list.


If desired material is not available in our libraries, we will attempt to obtain it from another library on our corporate patron's behalf. We guarantee timely delivery of information, in many cases journal articles can be delivered electronically to the desk-top. The cost of borrowing books or journal articles from another library is $10 per transaction plus any fees incurred to obtain the item.


Copying of library materials is available in-house @ $0.15 per page or through our copying service @ $25 per transaction or article. The Library adheres to the copyright law.
