Please be Courteous and Respectful

During finals week the duPont-Ball Library is busier than it ever has been. Students use the library for a variety of reasons, including writing papers, group projects, and quiet study. Please be respectful and courteous of your fellow students using the library by minimizing noise and distractions and cleaning up after yourself.

Good luck on those finals! Straight A’s for all the Hatters!

New 3D Printer

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.

Please Pardon Our Dust

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.
