Masks covering your mouth and nose are recommended while you are on campus.
The front lounge of the SLRC has been opened for quiet study. If you have your own laptop you want to use, or want more table space to spread out, or don't need a computer at all to work, book some time here!
Book a study room time by clicking on Book A Study Room below or by going straight to the online form. At present, rooms may only be reserved by current Lone Star students or adjunct faculty.*
Green squares indicate available 30 minute blocks of time. Click the squares to select the time range you want. One person can request up to 2 hours per day. Bookings can be made as far out as 2 months or at the last minute (depending on availability).
Once you've filled out the form and submitted your request, you will need to check your inbox for an email and click the confirmation link provided to finish making your reservation.
*"Current Lone Star student" means you are currently enrolled in classes with a Lone Star campus. Students of our university partners attending classes on the LSC-UP campus have study spaces set aside for them on their respective floors in Building 12. Lone Star students who, e.g. took classes in fall but are not enrolled with Lone Star in the spring are not considered current students.
Students with a documented accommodation for equipment like the LiveScribe pens can schedule a time to pick it up from the library to use this semester. Equipment will also be returned by appointment.
The copier (black and white) uses the same funding system as the printers. You can add funds online via myPrintCenter to have available at the copy machine. When you use your virtual funds, it costs 10 cents/page to copy or, if you feed it coins, 15 cents/page. The library staff will not be handling cash at this time.
The scanner is a form-feed style so cannot scan from bound books -- just loose pages. It is free to use, and you can save your files to a flash drive or email them to yourself.
Faculty and staff need to bring photo identification (e.g. driver's license) and a completed form signed by their supervisor in order to get an employee ID. Note: the library only creates the badge; we do not control room access or the distribution of key cards.
New employees: Employees new to the system may have to wait 1-2 weeks after their hire date before their information has been completely entered in the system by other departments. Until that process is complete, the library will not be able to make a badge. We recommend emailing first to verify that badging can be done. If you're not in the system, that doesn't mean something's wrong or that you haven't really been hired -- the process just isn't finished yet!
Replacement badges cost $20. This is a system-level policy.
You must be currently enrolled in Lone Star College classes that have been paid for (or show signs of being paid by financial aid) to be eligible for a student ID. Bring a photo ID (driver's license or other official ID: must have your name and picture) with you.
We start making IDs for each semester on the following dates:
Fall semester: August 1
Spring semester: December 1
Summer semester: May 1
You can create your ID at any point in the semester, but sooner is better! When the semester ends, we will not issue a new ID unless you're enrolled in the next semester.
Request a library barcode using the online form. You will receive an email to your student email address (accessible through myLoneStar) with your barcode and PIN within 2 business days of your request.
If you've previously requested a barcode and now want to get an ID card, go ahead and make an appointment!
