Course reserves are materials that supplement course textbooks which professors ask the library to reserve (hold aside) specifically for their class. The same rules for textbook use apply to course reserve material.

Interlibrary loan resources include:
We (also) offer lending on a walk-in basis to the following libraries:
The library has one printer located in the stacks room. It prints black-and-white and color. The printer also makes photocopies (same charge as printing) and scans to USB or email (free). Student IDs are needed to log into printers.
|Size||Color Price (per sheet)||B/W Price (per sheet)|
Double-sided printing subtracts $0.01 per sheet.
The library has 14 PCs and 2 iMacs available for use. The library also has wireless Internet access. Students are encouraged to bring their laptops.
Other campus labs:
If you have trouble logging onto campus computers or printers, contact the IT department located in the Mansion basement. You can also contact them through the SVC IT webpage.
Tutoring and writing services are available through the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL).
For more information please contact Learning Specialist and Tutor Coordinator Catherine Burns, or stop by her office in the library.
There are 3 study rooms within the library that are available to students for group or silent study.
Study rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis; they cannot be reserved.
