Students: Overview for Students

Welcome to Taylor Memorial Library!

The library is a great place to study, get some research done, meet classmates to work on a project, check out a DVD, or learn more about Centenary. Come visit us!

Things to Know About The Building

  1. The front vestibule (entrance near the gym) is open 24/7 when classes are in session, even when the library is closed. This area offers a printer (Library Lanier LP150) - swipe your Student ID card to release your prints. It also has a coin-operated color photocopier. To print in color, put your file on a flash drive and plug it into the USB port on upper right side of the machine.

  2. You are welcome to bring your food and drink into the library. The University Food Pantry is located on the lower level. Also downstairs is a filtered water station for refilling your cups/bottles.

  3. The front entrance, near the gym, offers a ramp for accessibility. There is an ADA accessible bathroom located behind the library service desk.

  4. The large room to the left of the library service desk is known as the Quiet Study Area; please remain silent or speak at a low volume. The rest of the library is designated for group study and a reasonable level of noise is to be expected.

  5. The Library Building also houses the Writing Collaboratory and the Print Shop, both on the lower level. The Academic Success and Advising Center and the Disability Services Office are next door in the Harris and Betts Smith Learning Center (sometimes referred to as the Library Annex).
