With instruction increasingly moving to online platforms like BlackBoard, FaceBook and websites, you may be looking for a computer. The Library has 40 computers available for student use (please be aware academic use takes priority). You can also access the wireless network (visit the IT Help Desk to find out how) or plug in at the wired carrelslocated on the upper level or on the main level behind the stacks.
Remember the Open Computer Center is available with more computers, color printing, a scanner and technical assistance.
You can also find places for individual and group study, quiet study, current magazines, international and national newspapers, and popular reading selections.
