Top 10 Things You Should Know About the Dick Smith Library

10.ID + NTNET Username & Password=Library Access
To check out library materials, you must have your Tarleton ID or another photo ID. In order to gain access on the computers, network, or databases, you must have your NTNET username and password.

9.Look for the ABC's and then the 123's
College libraries use an alphanumeric classification system. It's different from your high school or public library. Just remember, books on similar subjects are shelved together. So, when you find one really great book, browse for other gems!

8.The Library is here for you 24/7!
The building itself is open 101 hours a week, and our electronic resources never sleep. They're available anytime, but you'll need that username and password.

7.We have Books, Journals, Databases...
We have a variety of books, e-books, journals, databases, audiobooks, etc. on a vast amount of subjects.

6.If we don't have it, we'll get it!
Stop by the Circulation desk or visit Interlibrary Loan on the web.

5.Classroom Reserves are here!
Readings assigned for your classes are often on Electronic Reserve (E-Reserve) and Reserves at the Circulation desk.

4.It's your library - use it!
Use it to study, do research, catch-up with friends, work on group projects, or just sit back, relax, and have a cup of coffee and a snack from our Suavé Café.

3.Need help online?
Don’t hesitate to use the Ask a Librarian link to email a reference librarian.

2.Need in-person assistance?
No problem, call or come to the Reference Desk.

1.ASK! The best resource in the library is the LIBRARIAN!
