Regenstein Bookstacks in a New Light

Regenstein Library users will soon find it easier to shed a little light on their research thanks to a project to replace light switches with occupancy sensors in Regenstein's bookstacks. Along with making it easier to explore the bookstacks, the new lights will also allow us to save energy. Work began March 25 and continues through May.

Copy/Print/Scan Machines Now Require PIN

All users are required to set and use a 4-digit PIN (personal identification number) when using the Canon copy, print, fax, and scan stations in the libraries, residence halls, and the Arley D. Cathey Learning Center (formerly Harper Library Commons). This change is being made to protect users from unauthorized use of their accounts. More details can be found on the Unified Printing website.
