"I have all the resources I need for my thesis, like books, articles, a comfortable place to write and lots of friendly people to answer all my questions."

"The Library provides me with an excessive number of EZ Borrow books for my research."

Michelle Wetzel, graduate student, English

"I have to say that I am quite impressed with and grateful for the efficiency and ease Photo of Johnof using our interlibrary loan system. Having an account which keeps a record of all your requests and their status as well as receiving requested articles in my e-mail account has made carrying out extensive research projects for professors as well as myself very manageable and convenient. Thanks to all the ILL staff!"

also very helpful."

"The library staff offers great help, especially Mrs. Barbara Quintiliano, who always welcomes our questions about electronic resources. Also, the laptop service: We can set up the laptop at a big table and study."
