Charging stations

You asked:  Can we have charging stations in the Library?

Irma says:  You bet -- we've just installed one in the Connector between Jackson Library and EUC.  Charge away!

The University Libraries want your suggestions!

Welcome back, students!

The Libraries would love to hear your thoughts about Jackson and Schiffman Libraries.  Let us know what you like and what we could do better.  You can submit a comment online or in the suggestion boxes on the first floor of Jackson Library across from the Check Out Desk, in the  Digital Media Commons on the lower level of Jackson and in Schiffman Music Library.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Printing costs

You said:  The price for printing should only be .1c or .2c.

Irma says:  The printing price in the Libraries and all the ITS computer labs is a standard .6c for each double-sided page.  Please note that there are several scanners in both Jackson (1st floor and lower level in the DMC) and Schiffman Libraries and it is free! You may email scans or download them to a flash drive.  Also, online articles may usually be emailed or downloaded to a flash drive.  If you're unsure how to do that please ask a Libraries' staff member or contact AskUs.

Remember that all students get 75 free prints each semester and 40 pages during summer in the Superlab and other ITS labs. The Libraries are not part of ITS so aren't able to provide the free printing.

Additional information about printing in the Libraries and on campus is here

You asked:  Will you be getting Blu-ray to add to the DVD collection?

Irma says:  At this time we don't have plans to add Blu-ray.  If films start to only be released on Blu-ray and it becomes the predominant format we'll certainly reconsider.

Kudos for Digital Media Commons staff!

You said:  "I really enjoy the DMC because you all make sure that students get the help they need without turning a student away. I am graduating this year and just want to say thanks for all the help."

Irma says:  Thank-you for your kind words!

New quiet study spaces In Jackson Library

You've asked for more quiet study space many times and we heard you!
Just in time for the big crunch before exams the small study rooms on the 2nd floor of the Tower may now be reserved for up to two hours. These rooms are  ideal for private study. And they're available 24/5!

Good luck on exams  and final papers!
