Opening Library

WEEKDAYS: Library doors are unlocked around 7:30am to allow students and faculty access to the 3rd floor classrooms. (as of 2019)

If you are the first person here you will need to first turn on the lights. If you do not have a light key, there is one in the drawer under the register (the keys that have the brown leather strap). *Currently the light box is no longer locked, since it is in the Staff Entrance which is key card access only.

Using your Blue Chip ID and password, open the doors for the workroom, Access Services offices, and Circulation Desk.

Do the gate count. The gate counter is located on the bottom far right of the gate closest to the desk. Record the date and number on the Gate Count Google Doc, linked to from the Blog index.

The following can be done in any order:

  • As of 2021, all staff and student workers log in with their Blue Net ID and password.
  • ALMA Login for Students:  The Alma log in screen should open up on the first tab. If the credentials have not been already been saved,
    • Log in – circdesk
    • Password – Searching44
  • On the sit-down computer, open the Google Chrome browser and log into Alma using your own credentials. Go to for the log in screen if it doesn’t pop up automatically.
  • Turn on the TV using the remote in the drawer next to the low-level desk.

When it is time to open, unlock the three front entrance outside doors. Keys are located in the drawer under the register (leather strap set). Unlock the Handicapped Entrance Door by following the instructions for the Handicapped Entrance Panel located inside the door to Suite 104.
