Skeen Library fully reopen on July 1st

The wait is finally over, Techies! Effective this Thursday, July 1, 2021, Skeen Library will be fully open to NMT students, faculty, staff, researchers, and community members.

How does this affect you, our library users?

  • Reservations are no longer required for individual work spaces. They are available on a first-come, first-serve basis (this includes the KIC scanners and printers).
  • Study and conference rooms are available for reservations.
    • All study and conference rooms are locked and available through the reservation system (no first-come first-serve). All room reservations will require a brief check-in/check-out procedure at the Circulation Desk. In order to gain access to the room you’ve reserved, you will need to leave your NMT ID (or other photo ID) at the Circulation Desk. You will then receive the key to the room. Upon checkout, you will return the key at the Circulation Desk and your ID will be returned to you. This procedure will help ensure that library space is not abused or used inappropriately, and stays clean and in good order so everyone can continue to benefit from using it.
  • Stacks are open for browsing.
  • Curbside pickup is discontinued.
  • Lockers are available to rent. Rental periods are for 6 months (July-December and January-June) and the cost is $15. Lockers can be reserved at the Circulation Desk by speaking with a Circulation Supervisor.
  • Coffee service and popcorn will resume in October.
  • Computer Lab (Room 208) is unavailable until further notice.

As always, you can access our online resources 24/7/365, and you can get more information on our FAQ page.

We look forward to seeing you in the building soon!
