There are two different ways to go about reserving rooms in the library and it all depends on what you’re looking for:
3-5 People: This is usually student study groups. Reserve a study room (rooms 306 and 307-no computers/rooms 305, 311A, 311B-computers). To do this, go to the circulation desk and ask to reserve a room. Please do this at least 24 hours in advance!
6-40 People: This is usually for classes and student organizations. Reserve either the conference room (no computer), seminar room (no computer), media lounge (no computer), multimedia classroom, or the auditorium. Go to the library webpage. Click on “Book a Room” and fill out the form. Make sure to be specific with your technology needs so that librarians can set up the appropriate training and technology. Once you’ve filled out the form, you should get a confirmation email from a librarian that the room has been reserved.

Do you have an article citation and want to find full text? Maybe there’s a long journal article on reserve and you want to see if you can download it from a database? Or maybe you’re just looking to see if we have online access to a favorite magazine?
Journal Locator will tell you whether we have full text in any of our databases for a periodical (journal, magazine, or newspaper), and for what dates. Just type the title into the search box:
This shows we have full text for the LaGrange Daily News since 2006 in the “Access World News” database.
Sometimes we have coverage for different dates in different databases, for example:
JSTOR has PDF full text from 1966 to 2006; two other databases have full text for the last few years, up until 6 months ago. (If you want an article from five months ago, you can order it on Interlibrary Loan… or wait a for the database to aquire it.)
You can also use Journal Locator for magazines of personal interest (Rolling Stone, Sporting News, etc.). Try it out!
Please see the reference librarian if you want more information.
