Question of the month: Does the library have color copiers and printers?

January 31, 2013

Someone in the COH community asked if the library has color printing and scanning options. Yes, we sure do!

We have a color printer as well as a color multifunction machine that copies, scans, and prints). Each of the computers available to library visitors have these machines as options for printing. You can find the color multifunction machine in our Copy Room near the front desk. The color printer is located near the two computers located near the Copy Room.

And, as a friendly reminder, all printing, copying, and scanning is free if it’s related to City of Hope business. We charge  for non-work-related or personal printing and copying: 5 cents a page for black-and-white and 25 cents for color. Scanning personal items is free. There is a box at the front desk to deposit what you owe. This is, of course, on the honor system.

If you have any questions and/or need any assistance with using these machines, please don’t hesitate to ask at the Graff Library front desk or email us at library@coh.org.  After 6pm on weekdays and over the weekend, ITS Help Desk (x6-HELP) can help with paper jams and other basic technical problems.

Keep the questions and suggestions coming! We look forward to hearing from you.

Question of the month: Can I use the CalTech libraries?

January 29, 2013

Earlier this month, a member of the City of Hope staff asked us if he could use the CalTech libraries.  We have an informal arrangement with the CalTech libraries, by which City of Hope professional staff may enter the libraries and use materials on site, but they may not check materials out.  To enter the CalTech libraries, you need a pass, which you can request from us in person or via email (library@coh.org) or phone (626-301-8497 or ext. 68497).

We have some new books related to Learning and Personal Development Week 2013.  Some are by authors who spoke here during the week, while others are related to topics of courses or are recommended by the speakers or HR staff.  They will be on display above the new book shelf near the entrance of the library for the next few weeks, then moved to the Career and Professional Development Collection, located in the Graduate Student Reading Room.  We will be getting a few more books related to Learning and Personal Development Week soon.  We hope you find them  useful.
