Library Services for Students

The Catawba College Library offers a variety of services for Catawba students.

Students in Library Collaboration Space

Catawba students have a variety of study spaces and learning services available in the library. For a quiet place to study, we provide multiple study rooms, study nooks, and collaborative workstations. To research and browse, we house multiple computer stations on the main floor and Mezzanine, and the bulk of our collection in the lower level. We also offer various research guides, divided by subject to help students get started on projects. Our reference librarians are also available to assist by appointment.

For assistance browsing our collection, finding a course reserve item, checking out headphones, or for any other information about the library, our Help Desk staff are here to help. If the library doesn’t hold an item a student needs, we’ll be happy to assist in requesting that item through interlibrary loan.

Laptop Checkout for Students

Laptop Checkout for Students

There are eight laptops available for checkout to Catawba students, but only one laptop can be checked out per patron. Laptops are loaned for a 48-hour period, and cannot be renewed. Patrons must wait at least 24 hours between laptop checkouts. Additionally, a laptop agreement form must be completed each semester.

Once a laptop is due, a patron has four days to return it, after which the laptop is considered lost, and the patron will be charged replacement fees and overdue fines. Please refer to the Fines and Fees for our laptop replacement policy.

To check out a laptop, please visit the Help Desk with your Catawba ID.
