BGSU University Libraries

Welcome, Students!: Copiers, Scanners, Lockers...

Computers and Labs

Jerome Library has several rows of open computers on the first floor, as well as a lab that is free to use whenever it isn't reserved for a class. All computers can print, and a few scanners are available.

Rather work on a laptop? Bring your own and take advantage of the free Wi-Fi, or check one out from the Circulation Desk on the first floor.

Copiers

To make copies at the library, you'll need to bring your BG1 Card. Note that you can't use your meal plan funds to pay for copies; if you need to add cash to your card, there's a machine on the first floor of Jerome Library.

Color copying is available from the first floor reference area lab. Just ask at the Research and Information Desk for assistance.

The costs for student printing are:

$0.05 for a one side printed black and white page

$0.09 for a two side printed black and white page

$0.18 for a one side printed color page

$0.35 for a two side printed color page

Want to avoid printing all together? Try free scanning on the first floor of Jerome or look at the Alternatives to Printing Guide!

There's Special Software I Need to Do My Homework. Do You Have It?

That depends! Room 142 (the Electronic Reading Room) is an open lab when no classes are scheduled in it, and the computers there have SPSS 16, Adobe Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and some other specialized software. All computers in the library have the full Office 2007 suite.

If you don't see what you need on that list, check this ITS page to find out which lab on campus has your software.

Store Your Stuff

If you need a safe place to stash your stuff for the day, you can borrow a lock from the Circulation Desk and help yourself to one of our lockers. Just make sure you retrieve your belongings and return the lock before the library closes!

Ellison Machines

Have projects that require cutting shapes out of paper and fabric? Bring your BG1 card, pay a small fee, and enjoy die-cutting in the Curriculum Resource Center for an entire semester.
