Where to find us on campus

If you need an accessible entrance: coming from the accessibility parking or visitors' parking in Lot 1, enter the lower level of the library on the right side and locate the elevator within ITS (Information Technology Services) to bring you up to the second floor of the building. Take a left off of the elevator to enter the library.

Library research databases are licensed for currently enrolled students as well as current Lander employees. In-person guests who need research assistance should speak with a librarian.
There are small study and conference rooms located throughout the Library. These are on a reservation system and are in high demand by Lander students, therefore we ask guests to refrain from sitting in these rooms during peak usage periods (when classes are in session and especially exam periods).
The interlibrary loan service is for current students and employees of the university.
The Library has two desktop computers available for use by guests who are not currently employed by or enrolled at the university. These are available for a maximum of thirty (30) minutes per day. If you require more time, see one of our librarians to discuss your information need.
