If you haven't already, be sure to get your student ID made at the business office at Anderson Technical Building. Your student ID functions as your library card. Bring your ID to the circulation desk and we will activate it so that you can begin checking out materials. If you already obtained a library card during a previous semester, be sure to return to the library during the new semester to renew your card.
Circulation Policies - Students need to bring their student IDs every time they wish to check out materials from the library. If you are a community patron, present picture identification, such as a driver's license or campus identification card, to receive a library card at the Circulation Desk. You will need a library card to check out materials.
Interlibrary Loan - Use this form if you'd like to request items that are currently unavailable at Matheson Library. Only four requests will be processed at a time for one person. There is no limit to the number of requests you can make during a semester. Allow at least 7-10 days for an item to arrive. You will be notified either by email or phone that your item(s) has arrived, or if it is unavailable. There may be a charge for photocopies, postage, etc.; you will be informed in advance if this is the case. WKCTC faculty, staff, and currently-enrolled students may request interlibrary loan services.
Community Patron Circulation Policies - Must work or reside in McCracken County and be 18 years of age.
Should you need to view or print older magazine or newspaper articles on microform, then we have the equipment to do it! Our Microform Reader/Printer has an instruction booklet located beside it for your reference, or if you need additional assistance, just ask a staff member at the Circulation Desk for help.
Our computer labs are available to assist students with their academic needs. Don't miss out on this valuable resource! If you have homework to complete, be sure to come by and use one of our computers between classes. Printers and a scanner are also available to assist you. It's very important for students to keep their email inboxes clean, so don't forget to check your email while you're here. The labs are open the same hours as the library.
If you have your own personal laptop, bring it with you and you can access our wireless network from most anywhere in the library. (Please note the wireless network is limited to students only and not available to general members of the community.) Printing is not available from laptops. Only networked computers located in library labs have printing capabilities. You must save your file to a jump drive and print from one of the library computers. If you need assistance with this, just ask a library staff member.
Don't forget to check out our new Quiet Study area! Located in the back of the library away from noise, this area is private and has wifi capabilities. Bring your laptop and enjoy the silence!
Should you need to make photocopies, there is a pay photocopier in the library circulation area. The cost is 15 cents per page. If you know you are going to need to make copies, please try to have change with you when you come to the library.
If you have questions: Ask a Librarian! -- This is our online form for questions. Please allow 24-48 hours for a response. Also, please feel free to contact any library staff member for assistance with any questions or requests you may have.
