Library Basics/Frequently Asked Questions: Essential Resources


Borrowing Materials

Come by the Information Desk to check out laptops, DVDs, audio and books. Resources are also available for check out in the Curriculum Materials Center.  Need materials not owned by LWLC?  Complete this form and Interlibrary Loan (ILL) will request materials from another library for your use.


If instructors have specific resources that you want to make easily available to all students in your classes, consider putting the information on reserve. You can check out Course Reserves at the Information Desk or by accessing E-Reserves. 

Information Literacy Instruction

LWLC librarians will teach you skills to help with research assignments.  Course guides help you learn to find, evaluate, and use information.  

Research Consultations 

Faculty and students can work with a librarian for in-depth research assistance during a research consultation. The Research Consultation Room (RCR) is open Monday-Thursday 1-5 pm during fall & spring semesters.  

Copies and Printing

Printing cost $.10 a page. To print from the internet (databases, websites, etc.) users need to buy a print card.  Print cards can be purchased for $1.00 on the first floor. Users must have a $1.00 bill to initially purchase the card. Once the card is purchased users may add cash to it at any time. Photocopying is currently unavailable.




Archives & Special Collections  

    At the LWLC, we have a number of historical print and digital collections to support your research and classroom needs.  ASU is also home to the National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African American Culture.  Consult with a librarian on how to access and incorporate these resources into your courses.  

    Search WorldCat Local

      LWLC is part of the Montgomery Academic Libraries Consortium which includes: Alabama Public Library Services, Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM), Faulkner University, Huntingdon College and Troy University. Through WorldCat, you can do a single catalog search across all libraries. You can make an ILL request or use your ASU Faculty ID card with a consortium sticker to borrow materials directly from these libraries.
