  • Ask any question they have through our mobile chat service
  • Search for books or articles right from their phone
  • See the library's hours
  • Get research help from guides designed by SU Librarians on every subject, and even some for specific classes
  • Reserve a study room, and see which rooms are available
  • See which computers are available, and which areas in the library are the most or the least busy
  • See how many iPads and other devices are available for checkout from the Library Service Desk

How do I look up the person's account so they can enter their 14-digit barcode number to create the library card?


Printing in the GAC

There are print release stations located throughout the building on every floor. Each computer will default to printing from the printers located on that floor. 

Mobile printing is also available for printing from a personal laptop, tablet, or smartphone. You can visit the Printing Services page to learn more about how to use the mobile printing system.

Color printing is available from the Library Service Desk on the first floor. To print in color, choose the color printer when printing your document from any computer located in the Academic Commons. Then go to the Library Service Desk and you will see a color print release station. Log in to the release station and print your job. A library staff member will then get your prints for you. To print in color, select the go_ac146_color printer. Color printing is 50¢ per page.

Guest printing is available for non-SU-affiliated patrons. Prints are 10¢ per page for black and white prints, and 50¢ per page for color prints. To print in black and white, select the AC146-CIRC printer. To print in color, select the go_ac146_color printer. Prints can be picked up at the Library Service Desk.

You can use our library maps to see all the printing and scanning locations throughout the buidling.


Scanning is available using large flatbed scanners or document feeder scanners at our scanning kiosks. The kiosks are located in each of the printing alcoves on the 1st floor, as well as in the center of the 3rd floor.
