Library Services for Students: Tips for Zooming in the Library

Miss campus? Miss your classroom? Come to class in the Library!

Masked student working on laptopMany students are still taking classes online, or taking hybrid classes this semester, and the CSM Library is a great place to attend your virtual classes. Here are some tips for using the Library while you're taking your online classes:

  • Library desktop computers are available to use for your classes but our computers do not have webcams, microphones, or external speakers (headphones required). You are welcome to use your own USB devices on library computers to accommodate your classes.
  • The CSM Library has free wifi and outlets throughout the building. If you're having trouble finding an outlet or accessing wifi, please ask library staff for help.
  • Don't forget your headphones. Be sure to use headphones when attending class online, or when listening or viewing class materials. You can bring your own headphones or check out a pair of headphones at the Library circ desk for free.
  • Be mindful of the people around you. Some students will still be using the library as a quiet study space, so just be aware if you plan on using a microphone to participate in your courses.
  • Don't be shy - ask for help! Our library staff is onsite during open hours to help answer your questions about the library, or hop on chat anytime during open hours if there's something you're wondering about. We're so happy to help!
