Q: How do I print in the Library?

Load your Student ID with money in the Library and then use the ID at the print release station. You can get more help here in the library.

Q: Who can I ask for help?

You can ask anyone at the front desk for help. They will direct you to the best resource for your needs.

Q: Do you have my textbook?

We do not collect textbooks, but professors can place the course textbook on reserve for use here in the Library. Course Reserves are located at the front desk. 

Q: How is the Library organized?

As an academic library, we use Library of Congress call #s, so we shelve items with similar topics together. Circulation, Reference, and audio items are shelved together. We also have music, playscript, and foreign language collections in the back of the library.
