The library: More Than Just Books and Computers.

The first things that come to mind when thinking about the library are often books, journals and computers workstations. But, did you know that Dewey also has other equipment available for patrons to use, such as laptops, a scanner, and a DVD player?

If you would like to borrow one of our two laptops available for use, ask at the circulation desk. You may borrow for up to 4 hours, or up until 30 minutes before the library closes. All the basic software, such as Microsoft Office and Firefox browser are on the laptops. Check out our policies page for more information about our laptop lending services.

Additionally, patrons at Dewey can use the scanner station and/or the DVD player. Both are located in the back of the library by the microfilm collection. The scanner is hooked into a computer for public use, so when you put in your NetID and password, you’re set to go. Remember to bring a flash drive or save the scanned items to your S: drive.

The DVD player is hooked up to a TV on a cart. You may also borrow headphones from circulation to listen to a DVD or VHS.

As always, if you need any assistance using these items, we're here to help! Ask at either at the circulation or reference desk.
