Improved Instant Messaging

IMInstant Messaging (IM) can now be used for general library questions as well as research assistance. The service now uses a pop-up browser so you can continue your Library website session without losing your IM session helper. Find the IM button on pages where you are likely to have questions like the Find Articles and Databases page. The service is available only during library hours. All you need is a computer connected to the internet. Try it.

Paper due? Out of ink? Print it at your very own print shop in the library. Rapid Copy is a great service for students and faculty. They offer high quality fast copying, printing, binding, faxing, and finishing services six days a week on the 1st floor of the Library.

Did you know you can access books beyond the Library?

If a book is not in our collection, you can use Link+ to search over 40 libraries in California and Nevada, including most California State University Libraries as well as many public libraries. Books from Link+ are delivered to the main circulation desk in 3-4 days. Still can’t find what you’re looking for? Use ILLiad to search over 10,000 libraries worldwide. Books from ILLiad can take a little longer to get here, between 5 days and 3 weeks. But between ILLiad, Link+ and our ever growing collection of books, you should always be able to find what you’re looking for.
