About the Library

Stanley Library consists of three floors designed to give our students a variety of learning spaces. The 21st Century Learning Center is the first floor of the Library and houses our Learning Engagement and Practice (LEaP) Studio for library instruction, our Digital Media Center, our Digital Audio Lab, and our “green screen” room. The second floor houses the first half of our print collection along with our Learning Commons study area. The lower level of the Library completes our print collection and functions as our quiet study area.

Printing Information

Printers and copiers are located on the library main floor and the second floor. Students will need their ID card to print. The name of the printing application is called Papercut.

Students receive 200 black-and-white prints for free each semester. Students may add money to their print accounts at the library service desk. At this time, Stanley Library only accepts cash.
