The flooring in Ricker Library will be removed and replaced this summer. The project will begin the week of May 14 and conclude sometime before August 10. During this time the Ricker Library space will be inaccessible and the collections moved to temporary locations. All Ricker Library materials will be available by request only. Requested items will be available for pickup in 210D Architecture (our staff office area) or for retrieval at other campus libraries. Faculty and staff can also request delivery through campus mail. Any library and I-Share books can be returned to any library on campus. We will continue to accept returns, but they should be dropped off in our offices rather than the usual library book drop. Please contact us if we can be of any further assistance. Apologies for any inconvenience!
We have seven public computers for you to use. These computers are equipped with:
- Basic Microsoft Office programs
- Web-browsing software
- Adobe Photoshop
- Adobe Acrobat Professional
Library users can also connect to the university wi-fi using your own devices. For more information, take a look at the guide to Wireless Internet in the Library put together by Technology Services.
Library users can print from any of the seven computer stations to the library’s laser printer at the print release station. The print release station is the computer closest to the staff desk. Login to the print release station using your NetID and password in order to release the print job.
For more information on printing at Ricker, see our Printing Instructions. Have a look at the Main Library’s detailed instructions about public printing.
We have one overhead scanner that allows patrons save to a USB drive or e-mail documents. We also have three flatbed scanners available for your use. The flatbed scanners are connected to three of the public computer stations, and are equipped to perform scans using Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Acrobat Pro. Two are appropriate for larger-sized materials. These machines are available on a first-come, first-served basis. As a courtesy to other patrons, we ask that users be aware of others waiting, and limit your time on the scanner when others are waiting to use it. Please see Library staff for assistance.
The library has a microform reader that provides printed copies. Please see library staff for assistance. If scanning from microfilm or microfiche is required, the librarians can help patrons make arrangements to use the scanners at the History, Philosophy, and Newspaper Library.
We have one photocopier in the reading room that can make 8 1/2 x 11″ or 8 1/2 x 14″ copies free of charge.
This machine makes black and white copies only.
