As a Land Grant library, Mann Library supports the local community through a range of services, resources, and programming efforts. Community members are welcome to visit Mann Library to use our materials, databases, and resources on-site during operating hours, our events and exhibits are free and open to the public, and many of our talks are recorded and freely available online.

Computer Access

  • Wireless Internet Access: Visitors may use their laptops or mobile devices to access the internet by registering for guest network access. Please see Red Rover-Guest Access for instructions.
  • Desktop Computers: To use library computers for research purposes, visitors can use any unoccupied machine in the library, no login required.

Copy & Printing Services

  • Scanning with our copy machines is free, though making paper copies requires you to save the document to removable media and have them printed at the Mann Library Help Desk. B&W, color, and poster printing is available at the circulation desk, payable by check or credit card. Visit our Poster & Specialty Printing page for information on pricing.
