Yes. If you want to check out books or other library materials, or to print/photocopy you need to bring your student ID card.
The library currently offers 13 computer workstations. Ten are located on the main floor, in the Learning Commons, and three are at the back of the Reference Room. Each computer provides Microsoft Office 2007. In addition, the library is on the College's wireless network, so college-networked laptop computers may use a wireless connection.
To find a book, journal, DVD, or other library material, you must use the OPAC (online public access catalog) which is accessible by clicking on the Library Catalog link on the library's homepage. Search the catalog by subject, title, author, or keyword. For each item, the catalog provides the call number and the location within Wessels Library. If you need help, don't hesitate to ask at the library's front desk.
No. Wessels Library uses the Library of Congress (LOC) Classification System. Here is how the system breaks down the call numbers by subject. If you have questions, ask for help at the front desk.
Yes, the ten computers in the Learning Commons each have several USB ports to accommodate flash drives. Since you will not want to save any documents to a public computer, flash drives are an easy way to save and retrieve your work.
All print jobs completed in the library, both wireless and from the library computers, should be sent to the printer entitled: Library 5001.
At the beginning of each semester, each student is given an allotment of 150 sheets to be used at their discretion. Once this paper is used, the student will have to go to the Accounting Office to have money placed on their cards to pay for additional printing.

Certainly. Just use the library's book drop located in front of the library's main entrance whenever the library is closed.
Yes. You will be charged ten cents per day for every item that is overdue. Because Reserve materials are in great demand, those items that are overdue are charged at the rate of twenty-five cents per hour.
Please also remember that you are responsible for returning your library books even when the library is closed--just use the overnight book drop located just outside the library's main entrance.
In addition, always make sure to clear your library borrowing record of books and fines at the end of each semester so that you can receive that semester's final grades, any transcripts you may need, and most important, your diploma.
Yes. Faxing is free and available only for current students, faculty and staff of Newberry College. Just ask the library staff member on duty at the Public Services Desk whenever you are ready to fax something. Cover sheets are available.
Yes. All library materials checked out under your account are your responsibility, and you will be fined if they are not returned . The best thing to do is not to loan out your library books to anyone.
Reserve items, including books, articles, CDs and DVDs, are held behind the Circulation Desk (front desk) and loaned on a short-term basis so that all students in a course have equal access to them. Most Reserve items are designated for in-library use or overnight checkout only. Reserve materials can be checked out by asking the library staff member on duty
at the front desk for the item. Make sure you have either your professor's name or course number when requesting Reserves. You will also need your student ID card to check our Reserve items.
Just Ask Us! Each one of us has needed to ask for help in a library before. We really hope you"ll feel comfortable at the Wessels Library, and we are here to provide answers to your questions.
