We've heard your requests and have created a Silent Study Room in L205 on the 2nd floor.  This room is intended to provide a silent space to study without the distractions of conversation, cell phones, or other extraneous noise. We ask users to find a study area that is compatible with their particular activity and to respect others who are researching or studying.  Thank you and let us know what you think!

You don't have to wait for an open lab station. Now you can print over the wireless network to the printers in Library 122 and on the 3rd floor of the BSS building (outside of BSS 313) as easily as if you were in a computer lab. Your C-Card will be charged in the usual way, and the same provisos apply about refunds and making sure to print the correct documents. Install the software and follow the directions to print from your laptop.  Need help?  See the Help Desk in Library 120.
