For Visitors

Library Access & Borrowing

Library entrance or borrowing may be purchased for a nominal fee. Guests may apply for a library card at the Reception Desk. The type of card applied for will determine the level of access and borrowing privileges.

See Library Access and Borrowing & Circulation for more information.

Library Computers & Databases

Off-campus access to online resources is restricted to current students, staff, and faculty of Biola; however, any user logged into the wireless network may freely access ebooks, journals and other online library resources. Visitors who wish to use a library computer can get a guest account from the Tech Commons, which is located on the middle level.

Printing & Copying

  • 10¢ for black & white
  • 40¢ for color
  • Scanning to PDF is free, but a library card or copy card with funds is required to log into the copiers.

Guests may purchase a print/copy card for $1 from a self-service kiosk, located near the Tech Commons. The kiosks may also be used to add funds to an existing library card or print/copy card. The kiosks will only accept bills (no coins) or a credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover). To use a credit card, at least $10 must be added to the account. See How to Print/Copy for more information.

Code of Conduct

The Biola Library Code of Conduct is designed to create a safe and quiet environment for all patrons to enjoy. The library and its contents is a shared resource and, as such, requires all patrons to treat it, and the other patrons who use it, with respect and consideration. Library users are responsible for informing themselves of library policies.
