Interlibrary Loan

Word Processing

Computers are available for all library users. Microsoft Office 2010 is the current application. Users must save documents to a jump drive. Do not save any files to the hard drives. Computer settings are restored fresh after every liquify.

Print Accounts

Current students each receive a computer printing account credit usually 24-48 hrs after registration with a beginning balance of $15 ($.05 cost per sheet is subtracted for printing). Students may add money to their accounts at any time for additional printing.

Adding to print accounts may be made at the Business Office on the Maysville campus, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; at the Maysville campus library after 4 p.m.; at the Rowan and Licking Valley campus libraries during regular library hours; and at the Paris Extension Business Office during regular business hours.

The account balances are reset at the beginning of each FALL Semester, after Drop/Add. The balance from the previous year that is not used will be removed.

Community users pay per sheet. See library staff for more information.
