Preparing for Your Visit
Before your trip to the Libraries, there are a few things you should keep in
Bring dollar bills: You will need bills to purchase a
photocopy/print card, and can use bills to buy food at
Cafe (located in McKeldin Library) or the
Stamp Student Union, as
Bring supplies: Bring a pen/pencil, notebook, and flashdrive
(see below); bring as little as possible with you as there are no facilities to
store your jackets, bags, etc.
Bring a Flashdrive: We advise that you carry a
flashdrive with you for any work you might do, since you cannot store your work
on library computers.
Your Laptop or Tablet: Laptops can be used for application
other than connecting to the campus network. You will not be able to connect to
the campus wifi network. Only UMD students, faculty and staff can do this.
However, if you are going to be using Microsoft Word, and prefer typing on your
own computer, you may bring your laptop.
Please be aware that you are expected to adhere to the Libraries'
Code of Conduct
policy at all times during your visit.
Security: Please keep your possessions with you at all times. There are
no guards in the library, so make sure you always know where your belongings
are, in order to prevent theft.
