When the pressure is mounting and you’re doing what it takes to get things done, having convenient access to helpful things can give you an edge, taking something good and turning it into something that’s great. Up in Seaton 323, Weigel Library has a number of little things that can help you on your path to greatness. 

  • Did you know that Weigel now has wireless printing? That’s right. You can save time and energy by printing directly from your laptop while studying in Weigel.

  • Looking for a place to study with a group of people? Weigel is perfect. We have huge tables where you can spread out all your stuff and review things together with your team. We even have a large, portable flat screen that you can hook up to your computer to share content with your group.

  • Did you borrow an interlibrary loan item to help with your research? Guess what? You can return that ILL material to Weigel! No need to tromp all the way over to Hale.

  • Stumped for an idea, need some inspiration or just looking to see what events are happening in APDesign? Weigel has numerous book displays that will spark your interest and curiosity. Come up and browse!

  • It’s late at night (we’re open ‘til 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday) and you’ve printed off a large document that’s essential to your presentation. Suddenly, you realize that you don’t have a stapler. (Gasp!) Not to worry. Weigel has lots of little things that make a difference: regular staplers, a heavy-duty stapler (can staple 160 pages!), three-hole punches, scissors, pencil sharpener, and a paper cutter. If you need it, we probably have it.

  • Scan away! Weigel has two great scanners at your disposal. There’s a book scanner that takes high quality shots of book and magazine content for you. We’ve also a huge 18” x 24” flatbed scanner that gives you hi res images of your material. Since September 2010, this flatbed has scanned over 30,400 inches! Both scanners are here for your use free of charge. (Remember to bring your flash drive). 
  • Last but not least, we have the cushy furniture. When you need a break or have been up all night, come on up to Weigel and relax on our couch or recliners for a bit.

Sometimes, the road to success is all about the little things along the way. At Weigel Library, we’ve got you covered.


Judith K. Major, Professor of Landscape Architecture, has published a review of 
Therese O’Malley, Keywords in American Landscape Design (2010) in the latest number of Landscape Journal, dated Feb. 1, 2011.


Architecture Professor David Seamon has written a chapter for The Natural City: Re-Envisioning the Built Environment, a book just published by the University of Toronto Press. Edited by journalist Stephen Scharper and philosopher Ingrid Stefanovic, the volume consists of 18 chapters that consider how the natural environment might be integrated into healthy urban centers. Seamon’s chapter is titled “Seeing and Animating the City: A Phenomenological Ecology of Natural and Built Worlds.”
