What can I do at the libraries, you ask?
Well, what would you like to do?
Great! There are comfy study spaces and computers in every library. Marston, the Education Library, and Library West even have group study rooms.
Ok! There's a black and white printer/copier in every library, $.10/page.
Marston and AFA have a color printer/copier, $.50/page. You pay using
your Gator vending account.
You can do that, too! Use the library catalog to find books by title, author,
or subject. You can find articles using databases. Check your library subject guide to find the best article database for your topic.
