Twayne Authors series has moved

Twayne Authors Series can now be found in a different database, GALE VIRTUAL REFERENCE. Our old link to Twayne has been removed. Catalog records for the individual books will be updated soon to reflect the new location.

Important Changes to the Library Computers

Computers in the library are being managed by new software, which means that there will be a few changes in regards to computer access. Some of the most important changes are as follows:

  • All computer users must log in to computers using their library bar code. To do this, your library card MUST be activated. To activate your card, please bring your City Tech ID and a copy of this semester’s schedule to the Circulation Desk. If you are not a City Tech ID holder, please speak to a librarian.
  • During busy hours, users may reserve computers using the management system, which can be accessed from terminals in the Internet Lab and Reference area.
  • Users may now print from any computer in the library, and will use their ID cards to collect their printouts from two printing stations.

We understand that it may take some time to get familiar with the new system. Please ask a librarian if you have any questions about library computer use.
