NOTICE: The Library is planning to implement a new library management system on July 18. In preparation for this transition some functions and services will operate at a limited capacity starting July 12 at 12:00 pm. Users can still check out and return items and search the catalog. Users will not be able to log in to their library accounts, request items online, or use self check-out machines. If you have questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (202) 687-7607.
Getting a bit of a late start on some research? We’ll have you caught up in no time! Our librarians have prepared hundreds of subject guides that give you the best resources for every topic, so you can stop researching where to start and actually get started. And remember, if you want more help: our subject librarians are available for consultations as well!
3. Library Chat
Have a last-minute question about a resource? Need help finding something at the Library or on the Library’s website? Chat with us! The Library’s chat service is available every day whenever the Circulation Desk is open (that’s 8:30 am to midnight most days).
Using a new program or tool and can’t get it to work quite right? Don’t take it out on your computer—just log into lynda.com! lynda.com has thousands of tutorials on software applications (and professional skills), broken down into short segments so you can find exactly what you’re looking for and master it in minutes.
5. Chargers, Ear Plugs, Markers, and More
The Circulation Desk isn’t just for books! The Library also has Mac laptop chargers, Samsung Android phone chargers, ear plugs, dry-erase board markers, laptop locks and headphones available for check-out at the Lauinger Circulation Desk. The Blommer Circulation Desk also has book props to help you study more comfortably!
