Welcome to Fall Semester at ISU! As you begin or continue your college experience, come by the library for your information needs! The library is a great place for individual or group study reading, researching or visiting.
You don’t need to have a computer account to use the library computers for research, books, periodicals, internet, e-mail and Facebook–just your Bengal ID number! Printing is 10 cents a page (duplex–both sides.) If you do have a computer account, you will be pleased to know that there is a computer lab on the 2nd floor of the library.
The library will be open shorter hours the first couple weeks of the semester (August 22-Sept. Sept. 2, 2010), and then resume general library hours. For a complete listing of the hours and the exceptions, check the Library Hours page.
If you are new to ISU or unfamiliar with the library, you may want to check the Oboler Library Tour on this page, under the right hand column, “Pages”. You can also attend one of the numerous library tours (see below) that will be offered during Week of Welcome, plus mini workshops (Learn Something Quick) on a variety of topics that are offered the first week, Aug. 23-26. Watch Library News for an announcement, or check the bulletin board near the library entrance, going towards the rest rooms and administration areas.
The library will have an information booth in front of the library on Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 22 and 23, from 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. Stop by and ask directions to places you can’t find, or pose other questions to the reference desk staff manning the booth.
The library will be offering tours on the hour on Monday and Tuesday (10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.), and Thursday (1 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Meet at the Circulation desk to attend. If you need a tour at a different time during this week, call Spencer Jardine, Coordinator of Instruction, at 282-5609, or stop by his office Library 110 (near the current display magazine/art area on the first floor) to arrange a tour.
The Library will also be participating in the Involvement Fair on Wednesday. Find us on the Quad from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. The Involvement Fair will have free gear, free food, live music, fun, and information.
