A new tutorial and news about the iBar!

We've had a few technology hiccups on campus this semester due to increased server usage. Unfortunately, one of the most common questions we get after a server crash is "did the computer save my paper?" Microsoft Word does have a feature called Auto Save, and we've created a short tutorial to show everyone how to activate this feature. Check it out on our YouTube page

In other news, the iBar has come together nicely over the last few weeks! We've got a few pictures of the iBar on our Facebook page so everyone can see the latest changes we've made to it. The purpose of the iBar is to provide a space which will help increase awareness of online information resources. Located in the center of the Library, it is a convenient spot to plug in your iPads and laptops. Two iPads will soon be available for student use and will be loaded with apps with a variety of information resources. We will make an announcement when the iPads are available for usage.

Return Your Library Items! (Please)

Now that the semester is coming to an end (yippee?!!?), the library would like to remind you to RETURN YOUR LIBRARY ITEMS!  It is easy to forget them when you have papers and exams coming up, but if they are not returned it can affect you later on.  If your items (books or movies) are not returned, the business office puts a hold on your student account.  This means that if you want to check your grades, sign-up for new classes, or worse graduate, you will not be able to.  The library staff sends out friendly reminders before the hold is placed on your account, so do not ignore these.  If you have lost the items that you have checked out, then you are responsible for the cost of replacing them.

If you have any questions either contact us at or see our policies page on overdue/lost materials:

Good luck with the rest of the semester!
