Extended hours for finals @ the library

Open Late 2019 extended hoursHamersly and The Press are both open later this week and next for your studying and caffeine needs. We will also have a bigger 24-hour space open for those who want to stay even later than our extended hours allow.

Wednesday, March 13th through Wednesday, March 20th, the main portion of the library will stay open until 1 am (9 pm on Friday and Saturday), and HL 107 will remain open (along with HL 106/the student lounge) as additional 24-hour study space. Access to HL 107 will be available through HL 106, the 24-hour student lounge.

The Press will also have some extended hours during the next week. Click the image to the left for all the details, or check the calendar.

Good luck with finals!

Campus Printing FAQ

new printersHow much does printing cost? A single page (one side) of a black & white printout costs 1 print credit. A single color page (one side) printout costs 5 print credits. Students receive 225 print credits per term.

How do I know how many print credits I have? Log in to the WOU Portal and your balance will be displayed on your homepage.

How do I buy more print credits? Purchase additional credits through WolfWeb under the Student Menu. They start at 50 credits for $2.50 and go up from there. When you buy additional credits they are immediately available for use.

What if I don’t use all of my print credits? Whatever credits you don’t use roll over to the next term. However, accounts are zeroed out before each Fall term begins.

Pulling back the curtain on ILL

Interlibrary loanYou may know about Summit, the “lending club” of academic libraries in our region, but in this term’s library newsletter we pull back the curtain a bit to talk about the bigger picture of resource sharing among libraries. The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) cooperative involves over 10,000 academic, public, and special libraries across the United States and the world!

Check out this story and more in the spring term issue of the Hamersly Library newsletter.
