Food & Drink Policy

  • Drinks are permitted in secure containers -- i.e. screw-top bottles, sports bottles.
  • Food is not permitted in the Katie Murrell Library.


  • All patrons are asked to respect those around by keeping noise levels down. Cell phones should be turned to "Silent" and headphones are to be used at a low volume level.


  • The Katie Murrell Library is equipped to allow patrons to wirelessly connect to the network. 


  • A limited number of laptops are available for in-house use by LWC students. Laptops may be checked out for four hours and should be returned 10 minutes prior to the library closing.

Study Rooms

  • Study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis unless a reservation has been made for the room by a group or individual.
  • Preference is given to groups of students. Individuals may use the rooms, but they may be asked to leave if a group needs it.

Instructional Lab Policy

  • The lab is open for use by students as long as it is not reserved for a class or a training session.
  • All reservations are listed on the white board next to the door. Please check before you enter.

Computer Etiquette

  • Library computers are designated for research, learning, and classroom assignments.  All uses must fall under the college's "Acceptable Use Policy" published in the LWC Student Handbook. ( Click here to read the LWC Student Handbook.)
  • If you are engaged in frivolous or excessive personal use of a library computer and another student needs one for research or class assignments, you may be asked to yield to that student.
  • When using headphones, keep the level down so only you can hear them.
  • When working at a library computer, please work quietly. Loud laughter, shouting, and even normal conversational levels may be disturbing to others who come to the library for a quiet study setting.

Printing, Copying & Scanning

  • At the beginning of every semester, students have $20 in their printing account. Black and white prints cost $.10 per page and color prints are $.20 per page. If a student's account runs out, money can be added to the account by library staff or Students Accounts. 
  • Photocopies are $.10 per page.
  • Please use only library-approved transparencies.
  • The Katie Murrell Library has three scanners.  Both the color printer and the library copier in the copy room have PDF scanning capabilities with the use of a USB device.  There is also a Self-Service Scanner station located in the main lobby area.  

Juvenile & Curriculum Room/Closed Stacks

  • The Juvenile & Curriculum Room is a special collection primarily used by education majors. It contains children's books and curriculum materials. 
  • Closed Stacks contains back issues of newspapers and magazines. It is restricted to Murrell Library staff. Should you need material from closed stacks, a staff member will retrieve them for you.
