Frequently Asked Questions

What services/resources are not available to me?

There are just a few resources and services that are available only to current students, faculty and staff:

  1. Wireless printing. Wireless printing is limited to current Berry students, faculty and staff. You can print from any Library computer, though. Guest printing is $.10 per page.
  2. Interlibrary loan. Our agreements with other libraries limit interlibrary loan services to current Berry students, faculty and staff. We'll be happy, though, to help you find alternate ways of accessing the resources you need.
  3. Remote access to electronic resources. Our licenses with vendors and publishers limit use of nearly all e-resources to current students, faculty, staff, and "walk-in" users. As long as you're connected to the Berry network (wireless or wired, including Berry Guest wifi), which covers most of the main campus, you'll have access.
  4. Borrowing of some kinds of high-demand materials, such as items from our lending technology collection, magazines, reference materials, etc. (We're still discussing these limitations, so check back for updates & email us if you have questions.)
  5. A few specialized electronic resources, such as SciFinder Scholar & Morningstar. Rarely, the license agreement for an electronic resource restricts all use to current students, faculty and staff. The Research Databases directory provides links and any special access information.
