From Another Library (Inter-Library Loan):

  • To get an item from outside the SWITCH consortium, it normally takes between 1-2 weeks, due to transportation time.  Articles may be received more quickly.

  • Gather as much information about the book or article as you can (title, author, publication year, etc.)

  • Send this information to Let us know how soon you need it.

  • We will contact you when your requested item arrives.


There is a multi-function machine available in the library for your printing, copying, and scanning needs. It will collate, staple, print double-sided, etc.

Faculty, students, and staff: find your print code in your Populi account, under the "Info" tab.


Tech Support

The librarians are the 'first responders' for technology questions. We can help you with a variety of needs: syncing devices, log in and access issues, Populi, email, and other software help.

If we are unable to help with a technology question, we may refer you to IT support.
