Here's a quick tour of the Wilson Dental Library:
The work spaces of the Library Supervisor, Library Assistants, and the Computer Services Consultant
A kitchen space with a sink and refrigerator that student workers may use. Cabinets above this area hold cups, utensils, etc. for all to use
A computer and scanner set up to handle InterLibrary Loan (ILL) requests (mainly used for ILL, but also used for scanning and other special projects assigned by library staff)
Fax Machine (we charge patrons to use this; ask a staff member if a patron inquires about faxing)
Cabinets that contain office supplies
Cash register to handle all monetary transactions (library staff handle ALL monetary transactions including fines and book sale)
Key lock box that holds all keys used in the Library and Learning Center
All Reserves books are clearly marked with a blue Reserves label near the Call Number
These are the most frequently used texts by the Ostrow community
Reserves are 3 hour check outs and may go out of the library (EXCEPT COPY 1)
Copy 1 is always LIBRARY USE ONLY and may never leave the library
Any extra copies may leave the library and after 4pm they may circulate overnight (due back the next business day at 10 am)
Two Student Library Assistant work stations and a Staff work station
Our Media collection in the green cabinets
Across from the Circulation Desk are four computers used for searching the catalog, making Group Study Room Reservations, printing, etc.
Also across from the Circulation Desk is the Book Sale. Please refer to Staff for these transactions
The New Books Shelf is located near the Circulation Desk. These books are available for check out
Ten computers and scanners that anyone with USC credentials can log in to (labeled "JawRef #"). These computers are equipped with software needed by Ostrow students, faculty, and staff. The main program we get questions on is Citrix (which dental students use to log into another program called Axium to view their patients' records).
The Reference Office. Our Information Services Librarian is available for all research-related questions, specifically about "Learning Needs". Please refer research inquiries to our Librarian in person or the Ask a Librarian form on our website if they are unavailable.
