Reference Services

Contact Us

Telephone (978-929-6543) and in-person assistance is available whenever the Library is open. We can also be reached by email at reference@acton-ma.gov.

Collections and Databases

The Reference Collection is a non-circulating collection of over 5,000 print books supplemented by a variety of subscription databases and reference Ebooks. Most databases are available to home users with a valid library card.

Interlibrary Loan

If you require material that is not available from within the Minuteman Library Network, the reference staff will attempt to borrow the material for you from outside the Network. For more information on interlibrary loan, please click here.

Computer help

Assistance using the library's collections, the Minuteman Catalog and online reference resources is available whenever the library is open. Library and computer skills workshops are offered throughout the year. See also links to free online computer tutorials, here.
