Top 10 Reasons to love Tarleton Libraries

There are lots of reasons to love Tarleton Libraries, but here are my Top 10.

1. We have friendly, knowledgable staff that love to help you! Call us at 254-968-9249 or click  http://www.tarleton.edu/library/askaref.html for assistance.

2. Shhh...we have quiet places to study. Check out the Quiet Zone located on the upper level of the library.

3. We offer mobile apps for searching our library catalog and databases such as JSTOR, SciVerse, Ebsco, and American Chemical Society. For a complete list: http://www.tarleton.edu/library/mobile.html

4. Our Discovery search tool saves you time by allowing you to do one search and get results from several different library databases. http://www.tarleton.edu/library/discovery/

5. The Suavé Coffee Bar offers delicious drinks and food to keep everyone going.

6. Our Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) staff work hard to find books, articles, dvds, microfilm, etc. to borrow from other libraries for your research needs. Did you know that they can also get fiction and other recreational books for you and it's almost always free!! http://www.tarleton.edu/library/ill.html  

7. We know your time is valuable, so we have a charging station for your phone located on the main floor and a supply vending machine in the Student Lounge for pens, pencils, scantrons, etc.

8. All students, staff, and faculty can check out materials from our library free-of-charge. All you need is a photo id.

9. Our Display Committee provides interesting and informative displays. Stop by to see our display in the lobby and the new book display in the reference area bookcase.

10. We like to hear from you! We're doing a Library Lovers twitter contest through Wednesday, Feb. 13th @ noon. Use @TarletonLib and #WeLoveTarletonLib to participate. The winner will be announced Feb. 14th.
