What a great way to spend your summer—here at John Tyler. We hope you find this semester enlightening, entertaining and/or enriching. Hopefully you will make time to use the library and the many resources we have available. Here are some tips that you may find useful:

To get a library card bring a picture ID—your driver’s license is perfect. It only takes a few minutes then you can check out:

  • Books
  • Magazines
  • Equipment to use in the library


Laptop computers

White board markers

Study rooms are first-come first-served. If you see an empty room you and your group should jump right in! They all have:

  • Tables—perfect for group collaboration
  • White boards
  • Flat screens connected to DVD and video players

We don’t have a fax machine but we do have scanners. Sometimes you can scan and email a document rather than faxing it. There is no charge to use the scanners.

It will cost you $2 to start printing. You must buy a print card ($1) and put a minimum of $1 value on it. Our machine takes one and five dollar bills only so be prepared.

Ask! Ask away—we always want to support students. When we are not open Ask-A-Librarian has librarians ready to help you with your research and citations.

So come and visit us!
