On the Web
The library’s website includes access to all its online services and to Moravian’s online catalog, as well as links to the online catalogs of all other LVAIC institutions. Students may access databases from off campus by entering their network ID and password, or they may call the reference desk for assistance. The webpage may be accessed from the College’s home page at www.moravian.edu/library.
Books and other materials may be checked out for three weeks. Honors students may keep books for the academic year. Independent study and graduate students may keep them for the semester. Books may be renewed by telephone. Overdue books accrue fines of ten cents a day.
Materials on reserve are located through the online catalog.
Photocopying is not available. You may use the copiers to scan documents to your email. If you want to print something that you scanned, open your email on one of the library computers and print. Wireless printing is also available for Moravian staff and students.
Reference librarians are available for assistance in the use of library resources Mondays through Friday; 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Library instruction is available for classes and groups. Patrons can always contact reference librarians via the "Ask a Librarian" link on the library homepage.
