Free is always good news! The Calder Library is very pleased to announce that the fees for interlibrary loan and full service photocopy requests continue to be dropped. There are no longer fees for:

  • Requesting items unavailable in Calder’s collections from other libraries throughout the nation.
  • Delivering photocopies of items in the Library’s print collections that are not available electronically.


The form to request either of these services is readily available at It is also accessible on the Library’s web site, on the ‘Forms’ link on the horizontal bar near the top.

In addition, there is a new Free Scan-to-Email Option on all public multifunction printers in the library. Instead of printing copies at the library, you now have the convenient option to scan articles and book pages and email them directly to yourself. Not only is it green, it’s also cheaper!


New Small Group Study Rooms on the South and West walls of the first floor. University of Miami Miller students are accorded priority access to all seven small group classrooms in the Library: three on the first floor, two on the West wall of the second floor, and two on the lower level.


Study RoomPublic Computers

New Public Computers - There are now 33 new networked public access computers on the first floor. 23 computers require users to login with their MIT (Outlook) usernames and passwords. 10 computers on the west and south walls continue to be open access.

There are also 5 new wireless access computers on the first floor and 9 on the second floor that can be accessed as “guest” or with a MIT (Outlook) username and password. “Guest” access is severely limited and does not include access to the Library’s purchased electronic resources.

All 47 computers have software that logs users off after 30 minutes of inactivity. Users are encouraged to save their personal work on their personal flash drives to minimize any loss of work due to inactivity.


Computer Lab for Students – A card access system was installed in the e-classroom on the third floor of the Library for use by medical students when the room is not in use for classes. The classroom has 20 workstations and one instructor workstation.
