Reciprocal Borrowing and Interlibrary Loans

Students, faculty, and staff with library barcodes on their IDs can check out materials at any I-Share library, including Illinois College, Lincoln Land Community College, and University of Illinois at Springfield. They can also check out materials at the Jacksonville Public Library if they have a barcode and live in the city of Jacksonville. Interlibrary loans for materials not available in the I-Share catalog are provided free of charge to the campus community.

Reserves

These are materials which faculty have placed in Pfeiffer Library for access by all students. Faculty determine whether or not these materials may be checked out or must be used in the Library.

Computer Use

The Library Computer Use policy is intended to provide fair access to library computers for the MacMurray community, area college and high school students, and for the public seeking information provided through Henry Pfeiffer Library's Government Documents Depository status.

The following are guidelines from The Maggie: A Student's Guide to MacMurray College:

"Computer resources and facilities are limited. Therefore, every user must employ them wisely. If another is waiting to use equipment for a task more urgent than yours, please give way.

"Use of the computer facilities for entertainment, such as chatting or casual web browsing, should not be done during time of heavy lab use. Academic or course-related work is the highest priority; the next is serious individual productive work; last is use of the computer facilities for entertainment."

Guidelines for use of computers by members of the MacMurray community are as follows.

Guidelines for use of computers by the public are as follows.
