Due to the impending renovations in the Moore Building, the library materials drop box has been removed from the Lobby 2 entryway.

The drop box is now located inside the Stafford entryway on the north end of the building.

Please feel free to use it to return books, DVDs and calculators (calculators should be placed inside a padded envelope to prevent damage).

Come see our new (temporary) space in the Stafford Building

Greetings!  We hope the fall semester is going well for you.  In case you didn't know, the library has moved to the first floor of Stafford for the next 12-15 months while the second floor of the Moore Building is renovated to create our new Learning Commons.  The Learning Commons will house the library, tutoring and accommodative services departments for one-stop academic support.   

Meanwhile, library staff continue to offer the same great service and support in our new location.  Books, DVDs and calculators are available, as are three computers, printing and scanning.  A librarian is stationed ready to offer research and reference assistance.  Course reserves, quiet space and group media viewing continue as well.  If our computers are full, students are welcome to use 120T (just off the atrium) or 308T as open labs when not occupied by a classes.     

Library Hours:

Monday-Thursday 8AM-4:30PM
Friday 8AM-4PM

Again this semester we're pleased to announce the continued availability of technology support from our IT Intern Dustin.  Bring him your questions - he's happy to help.  Also, we welcome Jackie and Michael, our fall student workers - stop by the desk and say hello. 

If you need library-related assistance outside of our normal hours, please don't hesitate to use the Ask Us 24/7 reference service.  A link can be found on most pages of our website and guides.  Ask Us 24/7 connects you with a librarian from a partner institution, who can assist you with citations, researching articles, and more. 

The staff of Douglas Library welcomes you and wishes you a successful and enjoyable semester!
