Printing includes sending the print request from the computer they have logged onto, agreeing to the amount of the print in the Pharos window on the computer and going to the printer station to sign in and release the document.

Contact your liaison librarian to schedule library instruction. There are multiple formats available depending on the goals for your class and the assignment:
Librarian visit: a librarian will come to your class for an introduction and an overview of the course research guide. This helps students know who librarians are and provides a very basic introduction of how the library website is organized. Location: classroomor Zoom
Librarian visit, with instruction: a librarian will come to your class and demonstrate different aspects of the research tools available to students, including databases and eBooks. Location: classroom or Zoom
Class visit: the librarian will typically engage the students in instruction and research discussion, followed by time for the students to do some research with the librarian and faculty member present. Location: library or Zoom
Reserves are textbooks or other materials that instructors have selected for students to use during their class. The library provides a place where all students in a given class can access the material. Some reserve books are now available online. Find your textbook by course or professor name.
