new tech in the librarySkyline College Library is proud to announce an abundance of new technology this spring.

  • Two new large Samsung smart signage interactive e-boards offer students a whiteboard feature, web-browsing and projection from mobile devices or laptops.
  • All students, college employees and community members now have access to OneSearch, our District’s new library search platform. The platform offers both improved academic content and a more intuitive research experience.
  • All 47 student computers have been replaced with new CPUs and monitors.
  • As well as other equipment, students are able to check out Chromebooks for three days (renewable), any time during the semester.

The Library is also pleased to take down the following barriers:

  • Effectively immediately, students no longer need library cards to check out books or use electronic sources from off-campus.
  • The Library has eliminated overdue fines for books in the Library’s circulating collection.

Next month, the Library’s instructional classroom will begin sporting laptops for a more flexible teaching and learning environment.

The Library will also begin circulating hotspots with unlimited data, allowing students to access their courses and electronic resources from anywhere.

These changes have been in the works for many months. Students can look forward to more changes planned throughout spring 2020!
