New Equipment at the Jefferson Library

The library at the Jefferson Campus has received three pieces of equipment.  The first new addition to the Library is a PHIL (Payment Headquarters in Location). The PHIL is a device that allows students to put money on their ID cards for printing and making copies. The PHIL Station at the Jefferson campus takes only credit or debit cards. A cash deposit is not an option at this location. 

The second piece of equipment is a copy machine.  The copy machine will be ready for the students to use soon, hopefully by the end of the semester.  Currently the machine is waiting on the arrival of a part that needs to be placed on the machine’s card reader.

The final piece of equipment is a bulletin board, while decidedly low- tech it is still effective.  The bulletin board will have a different display every month highlighting the different programs available at the Jefferson campus.

This month’s bulletin board features the Vet Tech program. For more information, visit the Vet Tech Program's website and our Veterinary Medicine research guide:

Spotlight on Early Childhood Education

During November, our display boards will focus on Delgado’s Early Childhood Education program. In conjunction, we’ve created an ECE libguide to allow you to see what helpful resources are available. It has links to books, ebooks, databases, and websites to help you in the classroom, whether you’re the student or the teacher.
Be sure to stop by the library to see our displays! Especially our Dr. Suess display!

and our Juvenile Collection display.
