1 I think the library needs to have more convenient hours so I can print things off in the morning before class.

The library opens at 7:50 a.m. Monday-Friday so that students can print before classes. Don't forget that we are open late, too! We are open until 1 a.m. Sunday-Thursday, as we have found that some students prefer to print papers late at night rather than in the morning.

2 Can you guys have better hours?
Comment from Anonymous on Nov 07 2014


The library hours are based in large part on the results of regular library people counts and user surveys. In the past, we have adapted the library hours to better meet the needs of students. The next time a user survey is posted, we encourage you to give us more feedback. Also, feel free to e-mail us at librarian@millsaps.edu if you have specific concerns.

3 The hours of operation are extremely inconvenient. If I have an 8AM class I am sometimes able to come in early to print something off but most of the time I'm not able to becaue you don't open until 8. I'd rather have the library close at 12 and open at 7 or even 7:30 just so I can print things off. The SH lab does not open when it says it will, so I'm ususally stranded in the mornings. It's extremely annoying that the hours are not more convenient.

We open at 7:50 a.m. Monday-Friday so that students have an opportunity to print papers before 8 a.m. classes. Visit this link for a full list of our hours: Library Hours.


We regularly count library usage and ask for feedback through user surveys. The library hours are based in large part on the results of the counts and the surveys. The next time a user survey is posted, we encourage you to give us more feedback.


The library is also committed to encouraging the campus community to print less whenever possible. Some professors are open to receiving papers through e-mail or uploaded through Course Connect. You may want to ask your professor if that is an option, as that may be more convenient for you both.

4 The computers are awful. Not only do they never have the updated form of Adobe but they have random programs that slow everything down and they hate Mac documents. Please make it more efficient.

If you encounter computer issues in the library, please ask a librarian for help. We may be able to help you resolve the issue in person. Also, if we cannot resolve the issue, it would be helpful to know the exact problem so that we can report it to ITS Helpdesk. Remember, you can always contact us directly at librarian@millsaps.edu, too!

5 We need more access to online primary documents. It's really frustrating to have to limit our scope of research simply because we do not have access to certain online material. Our archives are also extremely limited in what they have, which also feeds into why we need better primary documents that can be accessed from online.
