Increased Network Access in Study Rooms
The Library will now lend an Ethernet switch
to students who wish to connect more than one
computer to study room network ports. The switch
can hook up to 4 computers to a single network
connection. It is very easy to use -- simply
plug it in and go!
The switch is available at the 9th floor Service Desk.
Students must leave an ID at the desk while using the equipment.
New Library Display
The Library has a new display featuring some of the antiquarian books
in our collection. This collection is kept on the highest shelves in the
10th floor reading room. The display is located in the display cabinet
near the main entrance to the Library. Stop by and take a look at the
New Copiers and Copycards
The library has two new digital copiers located on the
9th floor of the library. In addition to the new copiers,
the library also has a new debit copier card system.
If you have a copier card from our previous debit card
system, you can have the balance transferred from that card
to a new copier card. Please bring your old copier card
to the library’s Service Desk to have the balance transferred
to a new copier card. Only copier card exchanges are allowed,
cash reimbursements will not be given for old copier cards.
Library Suggestion Box
A suggestion box is available in
The box is mounted to the wall on your right as you enter the Library on the
9th floor. All suggestions, comments, and complaints will be answered as soon as
possible, usually within 24 hours of receipt. Both suggestions and replies will
be posted on a bulletin board to the left of the box.
You are not limited to the suggestion box! Please send me an E-mail to:

discuss about the Library or its services.

Consideration for Others in the Library
Please try to maintain a quiet atmosphere in the Library for the benefit
of all those who are studying around you. If you need to work in
a group, study rooms are available. You may use any unreserved study
room, or make a reservation at the Service Desk
with your current ID.
Study Room Policy
Study rooms are for group study by IIT students using the Downtown Campus
Libraries' resources. You may reserve a room in advance at the Service
Desk with your current ID.
Library Cell Phone Policy
Before entering the Library, cell phones must be turned off. In addition,
you must leave the Library before using your cell phone. We have been inundated
with complaints about the disturbances caused by cell phone usage in the
Library, which has forced us to adopt this policy.
For those of you with an emergency situation who must be reachable by
cell phone, you can leave your phone on ONLY if it gets your attention
by some method other than ringing. If you have one that vibrates quietly
or uses a blinking light, you can leave it on while you are in the
Library. This exception does not change the requirement that you leave the Library
to use your phone.
Library Food and Drink Policy
1) Drinks are permitted, except in the computer labs, if they are
in a reusable hard plastic or metal container with a permanent lid that
does not have to be removed to drink. Water is allowed in a standard
water bottle with a securable cap.
Not allowed are: cans, styrofoam or paper cups, soft drinks or juice in bottles.
2) Food is not permitted in the Library.
3) No food or drinks of any kind are allowed in the computer labs.
Please Guard Your Valuables
Personal belongings, such as laptops,
wallets, purses, briefcases, cell phones, and Palmtops should
be carried with you whenever you leave your study area.
If they are left unattended, security personnel may remove
them to a safer location.
