Library Adopts RapidILL System to Streamline Interlibrary Loan for Articles

RapidILL logo

There are over 20 million journal articles available from the library, but that number is only a portion of all articles that have ever been published. To better facilitate fast, easy and reliable requesting of articles from beyond CBU's collections, the library has adopted RapidILL. RapidILL is built into existing systems, so those who already submit requests don't need to change anything. View the press release.

Color, Cashless and Wireless Printing Now Available

Due to the efforts of CBU ITS, we're very happy to announce that color printing is now available in the library and around campus! You can also now print from wifi. A wide variety of payment options are available, including LancerBucks, Paypal and more. Cash payments for printing are no longer accepted.

Printing requires setting up a free user account. Don't wait, register today! You can learn more about the new printing options here.
