What About Equipment?

Besides things to read, watch, and listen to, Buley Library also has some handy equipment, such as:

  • Computers for student use (1st, 2nd, and 3rd floors)
  • Printers (1st floor)
  • Scanners (Ground and 1st floors)
  • Media Center (ground floor; includes TVs for watching DVDs and videos)
  • Learning Resources Center (1st floor; can make posters for student presentations)
  • Study rooms (reserve online here)

What About Course Reserves?

It's our job to help you do well in school, and we take that job seriously.

Did your instructor tell you get something on reserve at the library? Check out SouthernSearch for Course Reserves—it's one of the options next to the search box.

For our textbook collection, you can search SouthernSearch for Everything at SCSU and then limit the Location to Textbook.

We have information available for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And if you're ever not sure what to do with it, just remember—Ask a librarian!
