Free WI-FI connection for mobile devices, tablets, and laptops is available upon request from each library’s circulation service desk.
At Joyner Library, there are four (4) stand-up computer workstations designated for use by NON-ECU affiliated patrons for up to 1 hour per day. Several additional computers are available in the North Carolina Collection and Federal Documents Collection. Cooperative Borrowers and Area Educators can instead receive a Community Access pass, which consists of a username and password that works on any seated computer workstations throughout Joyner Library; the Community Access pass expires every Sunday, but can be renewed weekly.
At the Music Library, there is one sit-down computer. Use is limited if there are others waiting to use the computer.
At Laupus Library, the staff at the service desk can log you onto any of the sit-down computers on the main floor.
The North Carolina Area Resident Card permits checkout of materials at all ECU Libraries. This card is non-transferrable and may not be used by anyone else. If you would like to checkout library materials, you must fill out a Borrower Agreement Form at the Circulation Service Desk at any one of our three libraries before borrowing privileges can be granted. You must be 18 years or older and have valid North Caroline Driver’s License or other government issued photo ID to be able to be registered. You must present this valid ID and the library card every time you would like to check out library items or materials. Laupus Library limits Area/NC Resident Card holders to having only five items checked out on an Area/NC Resident’s account at any given time. Joyner Library and the Music Library permit Area/NC Residents five items of each library material type to be checked out at any given time (e.g. five books, five CDs, and five DVDs).
Special borrowing privileges exist for select groups: ECU Alumni Association members, K-12 Area Educators in the Eastern part of North Carolina, Eastern AHEC/Outreach personnel, members of the Friends of Joyner Library, members of the Friends of Laupus Library, and those being sponsored by ECU departments as official Visitors. Students, faculty, and staff of UNC System institutions and other select institutions within North Carolina may be considered Cooperative Borrowers; for a list of participating institutions, visit http://www.ecu.edu/cs-lib/services/cooperativelending.cfm. If you believe you might qualify under any of these categories of patrons, please ask at the circulation desk for details.
