Taking Care of Library Business at a Kiosk Near You

As the hub of intellectual life at Texas Woman's University, the TWU Libraries are all about serving the information needs of students, the faculty and other members of the TWU community. Abundant resources are available to facilitate scholarly research and study. Now there is also an easy and convenient way for patrons to take care of more routine library-related tasks--including renewing materials, searching the catalog, booking a study room and more.  

Information kiosks like the one pictured left are located in the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus and in the Houston ARC.  Conveniently located and featuring iPad touchscreen technology with bold graphics, the kiosks are the perfect tools for doing quick searches and efficiently conducting other library business.    


WHERE TO FIND A KIOSK
Blagg-Huey Library (TWU Denton):  At the 1st-floor Circulation Desk (to the left as you enter the building), toward the righthand end of the desk; and on the 3rd floor, just outside the elevators (next to the printer)

Academic Resource Center (ARC) (TWU Houston):  Just inside the door of room 4132 of the Houston Center (behind the Mega Computer Lab)

WHAT YOU CAN DO AT A KIOSK
  • Check library/ARC hours
  • Find articles using mobile databases
  • Consult Subject Guides for subject-specific books, databases, websites and other resources
  • Renew library materials
  • Book a study room (or check an existing reservation)
  • Consult a map of the premises
  • Locate a variety of resources using TWUniversal 
  • Search the catalog for books, journals and more

Take care of library business at an information kiosk near you.  Questions?  Please ask.  As always, library staff members are happy to help you.
