Audio Visual Rooms

The Library has a DVD/VCR player and slide projectors with viewing screens available for use in the Gladys Kohn Audiovisual Suite. Tape recorders and headphones can be borrowed at the Circulation Desk for use in the Library.

Computer Labs

The computer labs located in rooms 402 and 404 are available for use by members of the College community during regular Library hours except when they have been reserved for academic or training purposes.

Faculty and staff can reserve the computer labs for academic purposes by contacting Ms. Sheila Crawford, Library Assistant, at ext. 5694.

All computers in the computer labs provide access to the full range of Microsoft Office applications as well as email.

Limited technical assistance is available from Library staff members. Problems that cannot be resolved by Library staff must be referred to the Information Technology Help Desk at ext. 5730.

Other Computer Facilities Within the Library

There are several iMac's near the current periodicals section that feature Internet browsing. There is also a dedicated station for HIPAA training.

The Library has 3 transfer stations located outside the Gladys Kohn Audiovisual Suite where patrons can move files between disks (including zip disks) and their space on the shared network drive.

The Library has 2 scanners, 2 computers with CD-ROM drives and DVD players, and 2 stand-alone printers available in the Multimedia Room (room 414). Preference is given to individuals who need to use the scanner and/or the stand-alone printer.

Printing

Printing is activated via the 2 "GoPrint" kiosks to the left of the Circulation Desk. Two stand-alone printers are available in the Multimedia Room (room 414) for customized print jobs such as resumes. Printing from Library computers should be limited as much as possible to academic and clinical needs, and patrons should be mindful of the costs and inconvenience caused by printing lengthy or multiple documents.

Copy Machines

Two copy machines are available in the Library. Copies are 10 cents each. One machine takes coins; the other requires the use of a copy card. Copy cards can be purchased at the automatic teller located at the Circulation Desk. Graduate students must provide an authorization form from the Office of Graduate Programs in order to receive preloaded copy cards.

Microform Reader and Printer

The Library has a microform reader and printer located in the Multimedia Room (room 414). For assistance in using this machine, please contact a Library staff member.

Study and Conference Rooms

Four group study rooms are available for student use on a first-come, first-served basis. They may not be reserved or held, and the Library is not responsible for items left in these rooms.

Lost and Found

The Library is not responsible for personal belongings. However, if you lose an item in the Library and would like to know if it has been turned in, please call the Circulation Desk at ext. 5690. Items considered valuable are turned over to the Security Desk on the first floor (42nd Street side) at ext. 5566.

Telephones

A wall phone for in-house calls is located to the left of the Circulation Desk. Telephones in staff offices are not for public use.

The Library staff cannot page patrons; therefore patrons cannot receive telephone calls in the Library.

Specific articles may be downloaded by the Library Director or Reference Librarian as time allows. All resources consulted must be used on site.
