For the consideration of your fellow library users, aromatic meals such as pizza, soups, and take-out (Chinese, etc.) should be consumed in the Bookends Cafe (1st FL across from the Circulation desk).

blog4Study rooms can be reserved online for a maximum of 3 consecutive hours. Most study rooms have a whiteboard, desktop PC and/or Mac, and seating for small groups; see this page for “what’s in a study room”? Please show courtesy to your fellow students and be sure to cancel an existing study room reservation if the room is no longer needed so that other students can use the room (to cancel a booking, click on “cancel a study room booking” at the bottom of the reservation area. If you need help, please contact the information desk).

specialsoftware

Some library computers have duplicates of the software found in Computer Lab 006. Here’s where they are in the library and the extra software that is installed:

Table of 4 PC computers outside of Classroom 106:

  • Pro Tax Series
  • Quick Books
  • MatLab
  • IBM SPSS Statistics

Note that Microsoft Visio and Project are only available in the Labs (Garden Level). Also, all of our Mac computers are duplicates of those in the Mac Labs (Antone).If you need other software, try the Computer Labs in the Garden Level of the Library.

When working on library computers, don’t forget to periodically SAVE YOUR WORK to an external source such as a flash drive. Computers are auto-set to restart periodically; upon restart, all saved information is lost. So be sure to use File>Save As and do not save your work to library computer desktops for long periods of time.

Interactive Display: “Library Therapy”

twitterMCKFB_LIKE

Based on an idea called “Subway Therapy” in NYC created by artist Matthew Chavez that has exploded in popularity and received much news coverage, the library has created its own form of the project called “Library Therapy.”

The “Subway Therapy” idea was solely based on the election, but the library’s display is less restrictive in theme. Visitors are invited to write anything they are thinking or feeling or need or want to offer on any topic they choose on a post-it and stick it to the display board. Some examples so far are: “Protect communities more vulnerable than yours” and “I need a hug.” We also have bookmarks created by Counseling Services that people can take with them and know that if they need extra support, Counseling Services is there and waiting to assist.

The display is located on the 1st FL of the library next to the Information Desk. Please come and let your voice be heard.
