I would like to read a book or article that the library does not have. Is there a way I can still get it?
How long can I keep a book I borrow?
What are the library's hours?
I am interested in using the Archives. When are they open and what do they have?
Subject coverage includes University and campus life, towns and cities in the Keweenaw, as well as the companies, social organizations, events and personalities of the university, the Copper Country, and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The archives collections are non-circulating, which means materials and collections need to be accessed in the public reading room. The Archives operates on a walk-in basis for researches Monday - Friday 10am - 5pm. Research consultations may be scheduled for specialized types of research support. Copper Country Historical Images hosts more than 11,000 historic images of Michigan Tech and the Copper Country.
I have PDFs of articles stored everywhere! Can the library help me organize all of these documents?
I keep seeing the HuskyFetch symbol when I perform database searches. What is it?
I need technology! What do you have?
The second floor of the library houses 3D printers, a 3D scanner, wide-format printers, and an array of PC, Mac, and Linux computers. At the Circulation desk, you can check out calculators, cameras, voice recorders, phone chargers, headsets, laptops, and more. Take a look here for a complete list.
What Workshops does the library offer?
Every semester the library hosts workshops on a wide range of topics that will help you with your research, classwork, and teaching. Upcoming workshops are listed on the library’s website and include EndNote, Copyright in the Classroom, Library 101, and more.
