Going Beyond the Collection
The United Library offers many services. Just a few of them are detailed below.
Copying and Printing
There are two copiers in the main library.
The copiers are available for walk-up photocopying and are also networked to the library public terminals and serve as printers.
The cost for making copies is .05/side for Black & White; .25/side for color. 8.5x 11 paper is supplied.
Patrons are asked to provide their own ledger or legal paper if that is required. Card stock may be used in the by-pass tray of the color machine.
Documents may be scanned to a USB on the color machines at no charge. One can then e-mail these scanned documents.
Remote printing from anywhere in the world will soon be available via the "PaperCut" button at left. This icon can also be found on the main library "Welcome" page.
Displays and Exhibits
The United Library hosts a variety of displays and exhibits. Our small display cases change monthly. We are also happy to host tours of our rare book room or facilities upon request.
Members of the Seabury and Garrett communities with current Garrett or Seabury IDs may check out laptops for use within the main Garrett building. Details are available at the circulation desk at Garrett. Laptops are loaded with Office 2007 and Media Shout. A few have "Text-Aloud" which converts text to audio files for those with visual impairments. Borrowers must have their own USB flash drive in order to save their work.
Programs & Events
To complement the academic units, the library occasionally offers supplemental programming.
Although the United Library has numerous study carrels and tables for impromptu study groups, public spaces may also be reserved by Garrett-Evangelical and Seabury-Western student organizations, faculty and staff for meetings, classes, receptions, and events. Please contact the Library Director to schedule spaces. External groups are also invited to make use of our architecturally stunning library facilities for conferences, and other occasions. The library spaces are available weekends and evenings during the summers; weekend mornings and Friday evenings when school is in session. External groups are urged to contact the Business Managers/Hospitality Offices of Garrett-Evangelical to learn about fees, if any, associated with utilities, security, custodial or incidental expenses for use of library spaces. Hold your next event at the United Library!
