Library Homepage: What's New in 2020?

Textbook Collection

The AC Buehler Library and the Learning Center have teamed up to provide our new Textbook Collection! While we don’t have every textbook for every class, we just might have yours! 

Textbook FAQ: 

  • Textbooks are searchable in the I-Share catalog by title or ISBN, or we have a folder at the Circulation Desk you can look through. 

  • We will need the title of the textbook to help you or the ISBN which you can get from Beck's Book website, so bring your syllabus with you. 

  • Textbooks are usable in the library for a two-hour checkout—but you can always scan pages you need. You must observe copyright parameters with your scanning - copying 10% of the complete work is a safe amount.

  • You will need your Jaypass to check textbooks out. 

Ask at the Circulation Desk or call 630-617-3160 for helpYou can also ask at the Reference Desk (630-617-3173) or IM from the library website (library.elmhurst.edu) with any questions.  

Printing

1) We have introduced FREE color printing for members of our college community!

2) We now have two color printers.

3) We have moved some of our print release stations to "Printer's Row" on the north side of the main floor.  "Printer's Row" consists of three printer release stations, three black and white printers and two color/black and white printers.  We still have one black and white printer and print release station in each of the two library classrooms.

4) Our Scanning stations have moved to the north side of the main floor by "Printers Row." You will need to use your enumber and password in order to print in black and white.

4) You can now swipe your Jaypass to release your print jobs.

5) You no longer need to wait for the PaperCut print confirmation pop-up box.

5) Each of our printers is now distinguished by the name of a famous Chicago author: Here's a quick guide:
