The BYU Salt Lake Center library is a branch of BYU’s Harold B. Lee Library (HBLL). We offer a computer lab complete with databases and resources available on and off campus. Students and faculty may check out materials at the HBLL or request that they be sent to the BYU Salt Lake Center through interlibrary loan.
Library instruction is a required component of First-Year Writing and Advanced Writing classes at BYU. These classes include WRTG 150, ENGL 311–316, and MCOM 320. Instruction is designed to teach students how to use library tools to perform college level research. Course instructors should contact the librarian, Amy Bernards, to set a time for this instruction to take place. Subject-specific research instruction (e.g. for BIO 100 or SFL 351 assignments) is also offered.
Library and Computer Lab staff can assist faculty members with technology issues, such as problems with classroom computers and projectors and connecting to Wi-Fi. They are also available to teach faculty members how to use the technology found in the classroom and the library. Feel free to drop by at any time or set up an appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org or 801-933-9421.
Laptop Computers and Adapters
Instructors can check out laptop computers from the library for use in class. The library has a variety of adapters and power cables for instructors who use their own laptops.
Document cameras can be used to project images of papers and 3-D objects on a screen. Portable document cameras are available for checkout in the library. Permanently mounted document cameras can be found in rooms 101 and 410.
The I-Panel is a second display that can be attached to a TEC podium in rooms 410 and 318. On this display, an instructor can draw and make other annotations. These notes can also be saved by the instructor for future reference or distribution to class members.
The iClicker is a way for instructors to give in-class quizzes instantaneously. BYU has standardized the iClicker system so students can use the same unit for all classes at the university. Student units are available for purchase in the BYU Store. The library has two classroom sets for temporary in-class use. Students cannot check out iClickers from the library.
