Welcome Back!

Welcome back, Durham Tech!

As we begin the Fall 2017 semester, a few friendly library reminders:

Your student ID is your pass into the library. Current students need to have a up-to-date student ID. There will be a grace period the first week of classes, but after that, each student only gets 2 passes a semester (alternate photo ID required). Get or update your student ID at the Security Desk on any Durham Tech Campus –it should say Fall 2017.

Textbooks are available for in-library use. Behind the circulation desk, we have textbooks on reserve for many classes for anyone to use. These textbooks can’t leave the library and are loaned out on a first come, first served basis. If you’re looking at a way to cut costs or aren’t sure if you need to buy a book for a class, you’re welcome to use ours. You can check them out with your updated student ID/library card for two hours at a time.

Books and DVDs are here for you to borrow. We have all kinds of fiction and non-fiction books and DVDs (and even a small collection of CDs) that you can check out to take home. Books check out for three weeks; movies check out for one week. You can also renew items one time each. Don’t have what you’re looking for? We can get most books or articles for you from other libraries through interlibrary loan.

Librarians are here to help. The library has physical books as well as online databases full of books and articles,and librarians ready to teach you how to use them. We can also help you learn your way around the computers, printers, scanners, copiers, and around your course resources, like Sakai and your Connectmail. Don’t be afraid to ask questions!

Have a great semester and don’t forget to stop by and see us!
