1. Can I print from the computers in the library?
Yes, you can print from the computers in the library, but it costs 10 cents a page. The computers print to the large printer that is located near the workstations. Go to the printer and enter the number of the computer you were using. Enter the appropriate amount of money into the coin box, select your print jobs and click on "Print." The computers in the Media Center area also print to the large printer and also cost 10 cents a page to print. (Note: The computers in the Media area do not have Internet access.) Students can print for free in the Open Computer Lab (N-250).
2. Do I need a library card to check out library materials?
No, a student ID card may be used as a library card but is not required. All currently enrolled students are eligible to borrow circulating materials with their student ID number. We may ask to see picture identification when you check out materials.
3. How long can I check out library materials?
Different types of materials have different loan periods. Please look at the circulation chart to determine how long you can check out materials.
