Computer Stations
The library hosts various two types of computer stations, most often distinguished as "sit-down" or "stand-up."  Our stand-up computers are used for fast access to the library catalog. Patrons are not required to sign-in to these computers, therefore printing charges should be page at the Circulation Desk.  Our sit-down computers are used for students projects and access to applications, such as Microsoft Office® or Adobe Acrobat Reader®.  To use these sit-down computers, patrons must be current students or community residents.  See the Circulation Desk for more information.

Leisure Collection

Periodicals Collection
The periodicals collection includes current print issues, bound back issues, and microfilm copies.  This collection is located on the main level of the library.  All periodicals are non-circulating, meaning that they cannot leave the library's building. There are microform reader/printers and photocopiers available for copying articles.  Most of the periodicals collection is available through full-text online access via our databases

Printing Options & Capabilities
There are multiple ways to print & copy at the library.  In the copy room, we have two copiers.  One copier works through network access and requires a student enter a copy access code (the last four digits of your Social Security Number plus the last six digits our your Trevecca ID number) with a rate of 8¢/page.  The other copier is coin-operated with a rate of 10¢/page.

On the Main Level, patrons have the option to print to WL_PacPrint1 or WL_PacPrint2, which are both located by the sit-down computers.  Charges go directly into the student's account at a rate of 8¢/page.  Color copying is available by printing to WL_IRColor.  These can be picked up in the IRC on the Lower Level, but require a cash payment of $1/page.  Printing charges at the stand-up computers should be paid at the Circulation Desk.

Reference Collection
The reference collection is housed on the main level of the library and includes resources that are frequently used or provide "quick facts."  The books are non-circulating, which means that they cannot leave the library building.  When you use a reference book, please do not place it back on the shelf.  Return it to the circulation desk or leave it on top of the counter.  This provides library staff an opportunity to know what has been helpful and to ensure that it is returned to the proper location.
