See our Borrowing Information Page for details about check-out periods, fines, and more.
Designated computers are available to community and alumni use on the first floor of the library.
Community users are allowed three log-ins to these computers per day, each for up to 1 hour. However, each 1 hour session will be extended automatically by 30 minute increments until there is demand for the workstation.
When there are more people seeking computer use than there are workstations available, priority will be given to currently-enrolled university students.
Alumni and community users may access Metropolitan State online databases from workstations in the library. Current license agreements do not permit off-campus access to alumni users.
The State of Minnesota offers remote access to many online databases through Electronic Library of Minnesota (ELM).
