Information

Library Computer Resources

The Lonas library has:

  • 18 desktop computers in its computer lab;
  • 16 student laptop computers, kept at the desk, available for check out and use in the library only;
  • two additional laptops reserved for faculty use.

For classroom instruction, the lab also has an overhead projector that can be connected to a laptop by an HDMI cable. Instructors may borrow the projector remote and cable from the library front desk.

Audio-Visual Resources

All the Lonas library lab computers and laptops have DVD players. Headphones and computer mouse devices can be borrowed from the front desk.

For viewing on a larger screen, there are two television sets equipped with DVD and VHS players kept in the AV room (see the Meeting Rooms tab). Students may use the AV equipment in the library only; instructors may reserve the televisions to use in their classrooms or in the library.

Printing in the Library

Student printing at the Lonas campus is in the library. The library's dedicated student printer and computer lab are available during library access hours. The library's student laptops also print wirelessly to the student printer. Printing costs three cents ($0.03) per page.

Currently, printing is only available in black and white.

 

Photocopying and scanning

The library student printer also functions as a photocopier and scanner.

Photocopies cost five cents ($0.05) per page. Scanned jobs are sent to e-mail addresses entered by the user.

 

Adding Credit to a Print Account

All South College students automatically receive a printing/photocopying account, and can add credit to their accounts online with a debit or credit card. To add credit to your print account:

  • Go to Papercut and sign in with your Canvas username and password
  • Click "Add Credit" in the menu on the left and follow the prompts

 

Please see the Student Computer, Printing, & Technology Resources Page for more details on student printing.

Library Meeting Rooms

There are three meeting rooms in the Lonas campus library:

  • Meeting room 1 (glass-walled left room in the back of the library)
  • Meeting room 2 (glass-walled right room in the back of the library)
  • AV room (facing the interstate, the last door on the left)

These meeting rooms may be reserved for student use. Please see the reservations page for details.

There are also two rooms with study carrels for quiet study.

Test Administration

Test administration is available Monday through Thursday from 8:15am to 6:15pm, and Fridays from 8:15am - 4:45pm through the library.

Test administration can be used for students making up exams or for students who have approved accommodations for separate, quiet testing through the Student Services Department. Test administration will be conducted in the library common area unless the instructor reserves a library meeting room.

Requests for test administration are taken on a first come, first serve basis. Any changes to the appointment should be communicated by the instructor as soon as possible to the library.  For rescheduled appointments, the library staff will do their best to accommodate the new requested date and time, when possible.

ADA Accommodations & Test Proctoring

A library meeting room reservation is required for students with approved accommodations for separate, quiet testing. Test proctoring is offered for ADA Accommodations using cameras and recording software, and requires a library meeting room reservation.  

Requesting Proctoring for ADA Accommodations

Requests for test proctoring are taken on a first come, first serve basis. The instructor is required to submit the room reservation & proctoring request at least 2 business days before the exam. The instructor is required to submit the reservation request at least 2 business days before the exam.  Reservations submitted on the weekends or during holiday closures will be addressed on the following business day. It is highly recommended that instructors make reservations as early as possible in the quarter. 

Any changes to the appointment should be communicated by the instructor as soon as possible to the library.  For rescheduled appointments, the library staff will do their best to accommodate the new requested date and time, when possible.

South College Knoxville faculty, staff and student ID cards are made at the Lonas Library during Staffed Hours. See the library hours box on this page for the current Staffed Hours.  

The library is equipped with a camera and a card printer so IDs can be made on an as needed basis.  Have questions or need your card reprinted? Contact us at idcard@south.edu.

Online students can request an ID card be mailed to them.  To request an ID card, send a headshot photo, a photo of your driver's license for identification purposes, your South College ID number, and your mailing address to idcard@south.eduPlease note, your headshot needs to be your full head and shoulders, you must be facing front, no hats or sunglasses, and no social media filters for an approved ID photo.

Did you know? Your ID card is also your library card!
