Displays: Poetry of the Wild

twitterMCK_FB_LIKE

Poetry of the Wild is centered around an installation of “poetry boxes” built by diverse members of communities: poets, artists, residents, students, and ecologists.

The program launched May 1st and the artwork can be found both on- and off-campus throughout Newport. Alongside the artwork and poetry, there will be a journal available for public comments and musings.
For additional information, visit poetryofthewild.com.

Below are some photos of poetry installations in McKillop Library:

  • The 3rd floor is the SILENT study floor. Please be considerate!
  • Room 106 is reserved for quiet study from 2 am – 8 am
  • Computer Lab 006 (Garden Level) is designated as an extra quiet study area during finals

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 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, see your reservation email for details or contact a librarian) for assistance.


Final projects and exams got you StReSsEd? Relax, we can help! Take periodic study breaks, get enough sleep, stay hydrated and eat! The library’s Bookends Cafe (1st FL across from the Circulation desk) will have stress buster activities like games, activities, a graffiti wall and of course you can purchase hot and cold beverages and snacks as well.

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.

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
  • ArcGis

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. Library 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.

The McKillop Library’s public printers are multi-purpose Ricoh machines which can copy, print, and scan to email. Several features are available with these machines:

  • Selection of paper size
  • Laptop printing (Mac and PC) over the wireless network (Salve Students only; excludes Faculty, Staff and Guests.)
  • Scan to USB or Memory Card

Print jobs can be released from any of the five Ricoh multifunction printers in the library: three on the first floor, and one each on the 2nd and 3rd floors.

–Black & White printing/copying costs .10¢ per side of page;
–Color printing/copying costs .25¢ per side of page
–Each student is given $20.00 per semester on their Salve cards for printing. This initial $20.00 is free to the student and includes 200 sheets of single-sided black & white printing or 40 sheets of double-sided color printing. (Please note that color printing will deplete the number of allotted pages faster.)
