In partnership with the Academic Affairs Committee of the Student Government Association, the library is pleased to announce extended late night hours December 7th through December 12th. The library will be open until 2:00 am each of those evenings. Thank you to SGA and the library staff who made these extra hours possible.
Please see the library’s calendar for all the library’s hours.
The duPont-Ball Library now owns a UPrint SE Plus 3D printer. The printer offers high-end ABS filament printing with dissolvable rafting/scaffolding. Because of the cost of this machine and the cost of the materials to support it, this printer is restricted to academic print jobs by appointment Monday-Friday beginning at 8:30 am. Print jobs must be completed by 5:00 pm. Other print jobs may be done any time the library is open on the library’s two MakerBot printers which do NOT require reservations.
To reserve a time to use the printer visit this page.
You may have noticed the duPont-Ball Library has been hard at work shifting books, kicking up dust, and making a wee bit of noise. This is to make room for the brand new Hollis Family Student Success Center that will be located on the south side of the mezzanine. When the center is completed it will be a great area for students to study, collaborate, and learn.
