Who may use the library?
Any member of the public may ask for and receive assistance from the library staff.

Who may borrow library materials?
Currently enrolled students with Colonel Cards, faculty, and staff may borrow library materials. Courtesy cards may be purchased at the second floor circulation desk by anyone over eighteen with a valid driver’s license. Phone 448-4659 for more information.

Can the general public print articles found in the online databases in the library or on the internet?
Only currently enrolled students with valid usernames and passwords can print articles found online; however, the general public is able to download such information to a disc. Certain restrictions apply.

Is the online catalog accessible off campus?
Yes. Anyone with a computer hooked up to the internet can search for books in the online catalog from the home.

Are the electronic databases accessible off-campus?
Currently enrolled students with valid usernames and passwords can access the indexes and databases off campus if their computers have internet connections. This is also true for faculty and staff. The only databases not accessible outside of campus are CCH Internet Tax Guide (accessible anywhere on campus) and Nutribase (accessible in selected labs and library).

Can I find my textbooks in the library?
As a rule, the library does not purchase textbooks because its purpose is to supplement classroom materials. Occasionally, the library may have a textbook used in a course, but such instances are rare.

What other libraries are available to me?
You can search the resources of the publicly funded academic libraries in the state using the LOUISiana Libraries Union Catalog. You might be able to check out materials from some of these libraries if you have a LALINC card and the library you wish to use allows you to check the materials you wish to use out.

Also, you might find resources at your local public library useful.
