JFK Library – Home at the Heart of Campus

October 23, 2023

We invite students to make themselves at home at the JFK Library and Learning Commons. Whether your student craves a quiet place to study, an area to collaborate with classmates, or a lounge space to enjoy a Thomas Hammer coffee with friends, the library is the place to be! 

Spaces to study and spaces to relax. JFK features a variety of spaces, including open areas with whiteboard tables and areas with lounge seating. We also have single study and group study rooms. Most rooms are first-come, first-served, while others can be reserved. Visit our study rooms and spaces page for more information. 

Access materials from our library collection or borrow from far away. We’ve got millions of items, in print and online, including books, scholarly journals, DVDs, scores, databases, streaming media, and archival materials. Search our catalog.  This fall, our loan periods for non-equipment items have doubled, allowing longer use! Students may also use our Summit and Interlibrary Loan services to request items from other libraries. Check out this helpful video detailing our Interlibrary Loan services.

Borrow equipment, like cameras, laptops, hotspots, and audio equipment. Equipment Checkout Services. Located on JFK’s lower floor, has a wide variety of tech items to loan. Visit our website to see what we’ve got for your student.

Computers and print/scan stations are located throughout JFK. Students can easily access the software they need, and Wepa (wireless everywhere print anywhere) stations make printing and scanning a breeze. Students can print from the cloud, an upload, a USB thumb drive, an email, or a mobile device. Visit our scan and print page online to learn more! 

Get research help anytime, day or night. We offer help with walk-up service, and via text, phone, and chat, or can request an in-depth research consultation with a faculty librarian via appointment. See all ways to get help, as well as library use tutorials.

Subject-specific research guides are online. Does your student have a tough research assignment? We have online subject guides at the ready! 

Access services like tutoring, academic coaching, writing assistance, and large-format poster printing. The JFK Learning Commons houses a powerhouse team of student service providers including the Multimedia Commons, the Writers’ Center, and PLUS (Program Leading to University Success).
