Services for Students

The Library offers a variety of services to help students. This page consolidates many of the Library services students should be aware of in one convenient place.


  • Checkout a Laptop Students can checkout a laptop computer from the library circulation desk for two hours. Students should read the policy for checking out laptops and then sign the Laptop Agreement Form.
  • Coffee Service. The library sells single-serve (Keurig) coffee, tea, and hot chocolate (many varieties). You can buy the K-cups at the circulation desk for $1.00.
  • Flashcards. Students can put money on their Flashcard with cash at the circulation desk. Students can access their account to put money on their Flashcard with a credit or debit card by logging into their Flashline account, or, do a quick deposit.
  • Plagiarism Prevention Program uses SafeAssign, a program available through Blackboard, to review your draft papers for plagiarism issues. SafeAssign compares your paper to existing sources, such as the internet and databases, and identifies and highlights possible plagiarism in your submitted assignment.
  • Course Reserves Faculty often put course-related materials on reserve. Some items are held behind the circulation desk and some maybe added to our Course Reserves online guide.
  • Your Library Record Students can access their library record to renew items checked out, pay fines, check the status of requested materials, etc.
