Library Space Requests (not in EMS)

The library has spaces that can be reserved for classes and events that are not included in EMS, such as the first floor lounge, the first floor computers, and the viewing room on the lower level. The entire main floor can be used for major college-wide events.

Open Access & Open Educational Resources

Open Access materials, including Open Educational Resources, are increasingly important to the scholarly conversation as the publishing world continues to evolve and change. Myrin Library supports the Open Access movement and provides guidance to the highest quality resources available.

Research and Instructional Consultations

Librarians are available for individual and small group research consultations and to teach in-class library research workshops, in all subject areas and disciplines. Librarians work directly with students and faculty to discuss research projects and papers in detail and explore the many resources that are available through the library’s website for finding the best, most relevant materials.
