Vending Machines in Jackson Library

You asked:  The new vending machines are great but too expensive.

We hear you! But, the Library doesn't set the prices. Vending with UNCG Campus Enterprises provides and maintains the vending machines. You may contact them at or 336-334-3620.

Study Rooms with Big Screens

You asked:  What happened to the private rooms with the big screens?  We miss them!

We're so glad you find these rooms useful!  There are still several rooms with large screens throughout Jackson Library.  This web page provides information about all of them.

The ones with large screens are included in "Jackson Tower, Large Group Spaces," "Jackson Tower, Medium Group Spaces" and "Jackson Lower Level -- DMC Medium Group Spaces."

When you click through the reservation form you'll find which ones have screens.

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?

More about our technology lending program is here.  Both Jackson and Schiffman Libraries also have over 100 PCs available of range of software.
