- Second floor computers: At the top of the main staircase, there are 2 computers available. Use these computers to do research in the same way as the reference/index area computers.

Kindle e-readers

Lamination

Need to get something laminated? Media Services is the place for that. Bring what you want to laminate; they will show you how. The cost is only $0.15 per foot. Something to remember - it takes 20 minutes for the laminator to warm up, so call ahead (x 8444) to make sure it is on and that someone will be there to help you.

 

Printing

To print from a personal laptop in the library, you may need to download and install the appropriate printer drivers.  Click here to download drivers (MyMeredith login required).

 

Quiet Study

The top floor of the library is dedicated to quiet study. Conversation is permitted on that floor as long as it is brief and quiet enough to not disturb students in the area. There is also a silent study room (115) on the top floor next to the stairwell where no conversation or sound is permitted.

Conversation is permitted in other areas of the library, but library patrons are still expected to be considerate of others around them.

Patrons who feel that someone is at a noise level that is disturbing should bring it to the attention of the staff at the circulation or reference desk on the main floor.

The Library welcomes requests from faculty, staff, and students to purchase items for the library collection. Please use the Purchase Request form for this purpose.
