Welcome to Taylor Library – we have been changing a lot lately!

You can pick up books you’ve ordered from another library, and books that are on course reserve in our DIY area.

Don’t forget to check them out using our SelfCheck machine! Use SelfCheck to sign out regular books, renew your books, as well as check your library account to see any items you still have out to prevent them from going overdue.

Print using our new printing software – PaperCut – located on the Western Libraries homepage; log in using your regular Western username and password.

Add money to your PaperCut account with your credit card or buy a prepaid voucher at the InfoDesk.

Collect your print jobs from the public printer stations. Remember you can now print black and white or colour right at the library. There is also wireless printing so you can print from your own laptop.

You can also photocopy or scan your friend’s notes for that lecture you missed using our MFD machines.

Book one of our study rooms, media tables, or collaborative technology rooms using the Western Libraries webpage.

Are you sitting on your couch in pajamas at 9:00 pm but need a librarian’s help to find an article or get started on your essay that’s due tomorrow morning? Use our “Ask a Librarian” instant message chat service and get your answers right at home.

Remember to check out the library’s various How-To videos for more information about how to find and use our electronic and print resources.

Any questions? Ask us at the InfoDesk. See you soon!
