Library Services FAQs
WHERE will LIBRARY SERVICES be during renovation?
The 24/7 computer lab is moving to Neff and that space at the entrance to the Library will become the Library Services Center.  We'll be open 7 days/week to answer questions and provide resources.
  • Stop in to request Reserves and to pick-up books or DVDs from our collection or from another library; check out a laptop or iPad, have a research consultation, or Ask-a-Librarian
How will I get BOOKS from the library?
You'll fill out a simple request form; we'll don a hardhat and retrieve it from the stacks.  You should be able to pick it up within 24 hours (or faster with a Rush request).

How about iPads and LAPTOPS?
You will still be able to check them out from the 1st floor Library Services Center.
How about student COMPUTERS?
There will be a new 24/7 study/computer lab for students on the first floor of Neff.  Many other open student labs on campus will still be available.  See the list at  https://www.ipfw.edu/offices/its/resources/facilities/student-labs.html

Where will I find STUDY SPACES?
  • Many tables, chairs and whiteboards from the library will be moving to the bridge and to the Fireside lounge on Walb 1st floor
  • See Inside IPFW's post about other great spots on campus
Where are the LIBRARIANS?
We've dispersed across campus to department offices where we're closer to both students and faculty.  During the renovation, you'll find a librarian in the Library Services Center every day with some evening and weekend hours, too.  And we're online at Ask-a-Librarian.

Will the Library's 4th floor COMPUTER CLASSROOM be available?
The classroom will be unavailable during renovation but there are other teaching classrooms on campus which may be used.
