The librarians offer instructional programs and training sessions, including orientation, that cover the use of the library’s resources, methods of dealing critically with available information, and ways in which the library can provide information, both through traditional means and by the latest electronic methods. Training in the use of information gathering on the Internet and through other electronic information resources is available to all users.

The library on the Fairmont Locust Avenue campus is open over 110 hours a week during fall and spring semesters and over 65 hours a week during the summer sessions. At least one professional librarian is available or on call most hours that the library is open. The librarians provide individualized assistance with projects, research questions, and papers.
