How do I log into the databases?
Your login will be your library barcode, which is usually found on the back of your student ID, and begins with the numbers 20464 (enter the number with no spaces). Your password is always your last name in all capital letters.
My login isn't working! What do I do?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop into the library during staffed hours and we can fix it!
Where can I find academic articles?
You can find academic articles and more in the library databases.
Where is the library located?
The library is located on the lower level of the Information Commons, between Foundress and Cardinal Cushing Halls.
When is the library open?
Is the library a silent zone?
No. We ask that you keep your volume relatively low to respect other people who may be studying, but talking and working together is fine.
How many books can I check out?
Students, faculty, staff, and alumni are allowed to check out 50 books at a time, for 28 days with one renewal.
Where can I see what books the library has?
You can search in the library catalog to see our collection of books and e-books.
How do I request a book from another library?
If the book is within the CW Mars network, you can click “Place hold” in the library catalog and the book will be sent to campus for you to pick up. If the book is not within the network, you can fill out an interlibrary loan request.
How can I renew my books?
As long as no one else has a hold on the book, it will automatically renew once. If you need the book for longer than that, please contact the library.
How can I see what items I have checked out?
You can check your account by logging into your library account here.
Does the library charge fines?
Nope! As long as the item is returned to us, you will not be charged. If you borrow an item from another library, they may charge fines, though.
Do you have popular reading/fiction books?
Yes! Check out our popular reading section. You can also request other books from nearby CW Mars libraries.
