AboutCollections
The Library uses the Dewey Decimal Classification system for all materials. Books and government documents can be located by using Find it.... As an academic library, we own many books and materials relating to the full range of human experience, some of which you as an individual may, or may not find appropriate. Therefore, we ask that what you view in the Library remain private. As a parent of a minor we also ask that you sign a waiver form for any minor requesting a library card. The Tech Library places no restrictions on the type of materials an individual may checkout once they have a library card.
