Things to Remember!
  • The New Media Center (NMC), located on the 2nd floor, oversee all of the computer labs in the Library (1st floor, 2nd floor and Lower Level).
  • In addition to assisting you with your computing needs, the NMC staff members are responsible for loaning media items (such as videos).
  • Some videos circulate and some don't, so the NMC offers viewing rooms with VCRs and DVD players. You can request a room at the NMC service desk on the 2nd floor.
