Welcome New & Returning Students
Here’s some information about the services and resources available at your library.
How do I Print?
Definitely our #1 start-up question! Before you can print, photocopy or scan in the Library you need to have a ONE Card (student card) loaded with funds. Sorry, we can't add funds to your card. For details on how to get your ONE card and adding funds, go to the ONE Card website. Want to print from your laptop? You can print from anywhere in the college using the Web Print system.
The Library has Program Guides containing resources specific to your program to help you with assignments and projects. Each guide contains lists of books, recommended databases, videos, websites, blogs and news feeds. Visit our Program Guide website to find your guide.
Borrowing Laptops or Chromebooks
Laptops and Chromebooks are available to borrow from the Library TECH BARs for up to four hours at a time and can be used anywhere on-campus. To borrow equipment, you will need to fill out a Technology Loan Agreement and show staff your ONE Card. Visit a Library TECH BAR for details.
24/7 Online Access to Electronic Databases
The Library has subscriptions to a wide variety of electronic databases that you can access from anywhere. They include magazines, journals, videos, eBooks and much more.
