Before We Get Started

You'll be using a lot of Kraemer Family Library resources while researching your assignments for English 1410. There are a few steps you need to take to ensure that your library use goes smoothly.


Set Up Your Library Account

You can't check out any books (or request books from other libraries) until you take your ID card to the circulation desk and activate your account.


Install the VPN

You can access electronic resources 24/7 from home...as long as you are logged into the Library VPN (Transporter). Install it on your home computer as soon as possible.

 

Publish Your Work!

You're already researching and writing a paper this semester. Why not publish your work?

Consider submmitting a paper to URJ-UCCS: Undergraduate Research Journal at UCCS.  It publishes high quality research and creative works produced by undergraduate students across the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs' campus. See what the journal is all about.
