Computers: How can I use a computer in the library?
Please see Computers.
Library cards: How do I get a library card?
The library accepts student ID cards and CCRLS public library cards. For information about obtaining either, please see Obtaining a borrower card.
Textbooks: Does the library have my textbook?
The library does not purchase the textbooks for Chemeketa courses. Instructors may place copies of textbooks on Academic Reserve in the library. To see whether the library has your textbook, use the Course reserves search to look up your course number. (Example: ART205). Most textbook reserves check out on your ID card for two hours of in-library use. Directions on searching for textbooks are available.
You can also search in the library catalog by title or author. The library sometimes has copies of an older edition of a textbook that has been donated by an instructor.
Copying: Where can I make copies? How much do they cost?
The library has two black and white photocopy machines. Copies are $.05 per page. Transparency sheets can be purchased at the Circulation desk for $.40.
The Chemeketa Copy Center, located in Building 43, has a color copier. Copies are $.50. Generally the Copy Center is unable to do while-you-wait copying; materials must be left or e-mailed. You can attach a file to be printed in color and address your e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Off campus access: Can I access your databases from off campus?
Yes, from the library's Database pages. You will need your My Chemeketa user name and password as a login.
Do you have a pencil sharpener, hole punch, paper cutter, etc.?
These items are located in the Copy Room, next to the Circulation desk.
Do you have electronic books?
Yes. You can find them in the library catalog, or by choosing from the list of vendor sites on the library's Database pages. You will need your My Chemeketa user name and password as a login.
