The library facility includes approximately 90 computers with a suite of office applications available to patrons to prepare documents, such as presentations, research reports, or, to access the Internet. Calvin T. Ryan’s catalog and the majority of the holdings in the library are indexed in an online catalog. E-books, journals, and other electronic resources are available through the catalog by faculty and students from any computer with Internet access, throughout the world.

Study rooms and a classroom provide spaces for students to practice presentations in an educational setting. Audio-visual equipment also facilitates classroom preparation and opportunities to view the electronic media maintained by the library.

Reference service is available in person, via email, and through a chat service. As with the library’s digital resources, chat based reference service is available from any computer with Internet access, throughout the world. In addition to the Calvin T. Ryan Library reference staff, expert reference librarians from other institutions provide back-up reference service. This service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
