Library of Things

Welcome back to another How To Tuesday! This time we’re going to be looking at Brookens Library’s very own Library of Things. The Library of Things, if you do not know, is exactly what it sounds like! We have various items that we allow patrons to checkout similar to any book in the Library. We have various cooking supplies like cake pans or even a pasta maker. There is also technology like sewing machines and especially cameras! Now we’re going to help you navigate to the library homepage, so you too can explore just some of the things that Brookens has to offer.

Step 1

First, let’s navigate to the Brookens Library homepage, which you probably already know how to do since you’re reading this blog post. However, if you do not then all you have to do is type library.uis.edu into the search box of any browser of your choice.
