As a resident of Fremont and not a student, what library resources can I
use? Can I check out books, use the computers, and connect to wifi?

Hi Christy,

Non-students are welcome to come to the library/LRC on either campus to study, and/or use the public computers from which all of the online databases may be accessed while on site.

Only current students are able to check out books, or access the databases from home (this requires authentification using an active student number). However, should you find digital sources through the databases or books you find useful, you could open an online print/photocopy account which would allow you to, for instance, print out an article while on campus, or photocopy pages from a print source. You may also bring your own laptop or other device and connect to our guest wifi; it is free, but please be aware that it is not a secured network.

Let me know if you have any other questions. And of course, if you do visit either library/LRC, please feel free to ask our staff for assistance.

Best regards,

Barbara Duggal, Librarian
