Procedures and Guidelines Using the Resources
The Architecture Resource Center is staffed with knowledgeable
personnel to assist you in finding the resources you need. Don't
hesitate to ask for help, that's why they're there.
There are two networked workstations in the ARC for public use. All questions are cheerfully and inexpensively answered.
Current periodicals are on display behind the seating area. Older issues are found under the shelves, and more ancient issues are bound and available for short-term circulation. Only the ancient bound volumes are mature enough to leave the ARC. Leave the others in our protective custody, please. Use the Avery Index, Architectural Index, and Art Index (in FirstSearch, JeWeL opening menu) to find article citations.
Take any of the Reference Materials out of the doors of the ARC and the staff will be delighted to take way lay you. These books are not to be taken from the ARC.
Professors often place materials on reserve at the ARC. They are kept within the hallowed confines of the circulation area, and we recommend that for your continued safety you never venture into that area by yourself. Ask ARC personnel. A list of materials on reserve is available from any smiling on-duty assistant.
Copy Machine and Office Equipment
The copier and office equipment on the table near the machine are available for patron use. This equipment is a courtesy to you and remains in the ARC. Period. We will be delighted to give you a copy card upon receipt of the correct amount of cash. We do not understand the term IOU. Copy cards may also be charged to an Andrews University account. We regret that we cannot give refunds for unused portions of copy cards.
More Vital Information
Do not reshelve books. It's not that we don't trust your ability to use the alphabet. Please just leave materials out on the tables. All books that are used are counted by our computers so we can get an accurate count of how many and which books are used.
Don't be offended if we ask to take a quick look inside any backpacks
or briefcases. We don't think we will ever do so, but you never
