Welcome to the Dallas Center Library

Welcome to Fall 2016 at the TWU T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences-Dallas Center. The Dallas Center Library offers the following to help you as you begin this important next step in your academic career. 

The Dallas Center Library offers . . . 
Laptops, Chromebooks, phone chargers, and headphones--all with 4-hour checkout periods. We also offer graphing calculators that can be checked out for 8 hours.

A quiet area and reservable study rooms that seat 2-8 people.

Computers in all parts of the library (including the quiet section, the library's main section, and the lounge area which remains open until the building closes. Printing is not available after the library closes).

A printer in the library. Students, faculty, and staff can print from any library computer but not from personal laptops.

Do you carry the textbooks for my classes?
We don’t carry all textbooks for all courses, but we do carry core books for many of the disciplines. Stop by the Information Desk or search the library catalog to see if your textbook is available.  

How do I check out books?
You must have a student, faculty, or staff ID card to check out library material. 

How long can I keep a book? 
Please visit our Borrowing Materials page for information on checkout periods.

What is the checkout period for a reserve item? 
The lending time for Reserve items varies. Generally, Reserve items can be checked out for two or four hours--but some items have shorter or longer checkout periods. At the time of checkout a library staff member will tell you when your item is due. You can call 214-689-6580 before you come to the library to verify the checkout period for a particular Reserve item.

How do I reserve a study room?
Standard study rooms must be reserved online and are available to current TWU students, faculty, and staff. Users reserve study rooms by logging in with their Portal account. The presentation room must be reserved in person.

How much does it cost to print?
For students, the cost of printing is a part of student fees. You will not need to pay anything at the library to print.

Can we print in color at the library?
Color printing is not available in the library, but the Office of Student Life on the 3rd floor offers color printing at 25 cents per page.
