Coffee Shop

You asked:  We should have a coffee area.

We would LOVE to have a coffee shop in Jackson Library!  Unfortunately at this time we're not able to build one.  The nearby options include the Starbucks in EUC.  There are also vending machines in the basement of the Tower that offer cold coffee drinks as well as soft drinks.  These machines are available all hours the Library is open including 24/5.

You asked:  Can the Libraries offer free or cheaper printing?

Because the Libraries also serve the general public we are not able to offer free printing like the labs on campus do.

Our printing fees are set by UNCG's Information Technology Services and we need to follow them

Many of our resources let you download or email items and you can then print in a lab or on your personal printer.

The libraries have scanners in both Jackson and Schiffman Libraries.  Scans may be sent to your phone, a flash drive or email.

Please be sure to ask a staff member about printing and scanning.  And anything else!

Laptop checkout

You asked:  Can we have longer loan periods for laptops?

Because of the high demand for laptops we have the 4-hour loan period to provide as much access as possible.  Laptops may be renewed in person if there is no waiting list. More about our technology lending program is here.  Both Jackson and Schiffman Libraries also have over 100 PCs available of range of software.

Quiet Study Areas

You asked:  Where are the quiet study areas in Jackson Library?

Floors 6-9 in Jackson Library are quiet areas. The 6th floor (pictured here) features numerous private desks with power. We will be refurnishing 7,8 and 9 over the course of the year.

And, you can reserve a small study room (also pictured) on floors 2, 5, 6 and 7 for up to two hours at a time. On this web page they are the "small study rooms w/ PCs" and the "small study rooms w/o PCs.

If there is too much noise on a quiet floor you may text or IM a staff member or report it to the Check Out Desk on the 1st floor

Whiteboard tables

You asked: Can we get whiteboard tables that we can write on?  They are really convenient.

We are planning to experiment with different types of furniture this year and we can certainly try these!

In the meantime check out our new group study areas on Tower 2, 3 and 4 with lots of whiteboard space. And we bought many new rolling white boards that are on all the floors in Jackson and Schiffman

Online renewal of technology

You asked:  Can we have online renewals for technology?

Because of the high demand for laptops, calculators, GoPros
and other technology we ask for in-person renewal.  Often there are students waiting for these items to become available and we want to be sure that everyone who needs one is able to check one out.

Online renewal is available for many other items including most books and some Audio-Visual Materials.  More information on how to renew online, including video tutorials, is here.
