Online Renewal

You asked:  Can we have online renewals?

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

Because of the high demand for laptops we ask for in-person renewal.  Often there are students waiting for a laptop to become available and we want to be sure that everyone who needs one is able to check one out.

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 may 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 the Harold Schiffman Music Library.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Rooms for tutoring

You asked:  Are there private rooms for tutoring?

Yes!  The study rooms on floors 2, 5 and 6 are ideal for tutoring.  They have a table and chairs, room for up to 3 people, power and wireless is available.  Any UNCG student may reserve them on the scheduler on the Libraries' home page.

Clickers

You asked:  Please provide "clickers" (audience response devices) for check out.

Libraries' response:  Clickers need to be registered with an individual to be used for a long period of time so it's not something we can really provide for multiple users.

The UNCG Bookstore has new and used clickers for purchase.

Digital Media Commons (DMC) hours

You asked:  Please keep the DMC open 24/5, especially during exams.

We're delighted how much students love the DMC!  The reason we aren't able to keep it open 24 hours is primarily funding.  If we kept the DMC opened we'd have to staff it. Also, we'd need to keep  the College Avenue entrance open due to fire regulations and staff that, too.  Unfortunately, we don't have the resources at this time to cover this additional staffing.

New quiet study areas

You said:  We need more quiet study space!

We've added additional quiet study rooms on the 5th and 6th floors.  They may be reserved on the scheduler on the Libraries' home page.  And they're available 24/5!
