Let us know what you think & help shape our future study room reservations system!


Keurig- not just for coffee anymore

Did you know that the library’s Keurig pod brewers can also be used as hot water dispensers? Want to make some hot soup, oatmeal, or just use your own teabags? HSL has small Keurig units (located in the kitchen areas on all three floors), and larger machines in the Study Zone & the Lounge@HSL. All units include instructions for dispensing hot water, and are easy to use; give one a try next time you’re here!
