Student on a laptop
Data and power connections for laptops are located throughout the library, or you can go wireless with a Wi-Fi enabled computer. Don’t have one? You can borrow one from the front desk. Ten iPads are also available for students, staff and faculty to borrow for up to 1 week.
Alden Trust Center
The centerpiece to the first floor is the Alden Trust Computer Teaching Laboratory. It is a high-tech teaching classroom that enhances the teaching and learning process for the students. The room features a 65 inch HD screen connected to a SMART Sympodium. This setup allows the instructor to write on a touch screen so that graphics and text will be displayed on the large screen. The instructor can assume control of any individual PC in the classroom.

The second floor houses the Research Computer Lab, the Periodicals, Reference collection and Children's collection, as well as a micro-film viewer, printers and copy machines.
On the third floor you will find the Catherine Evans McGowan Center, a fully-networked conference center used for seminars, conferences, community meetings and other activities.
