Go to Avalon (linked below) and select the Sign In button in the top right corner. Log in using your MI username and password. Browse our collections on the left-hand side of the page. I recommend looking at Collections and then narrow down by date.
We are a small library and might not have the books or materials you are looking for. Libraries love helping each other, so we can contact other libraries to have them send us what you need.
You tell us what you're looking for and I find the closest library that has that item and request that they send it to us. If they approve the request, we can usually get it within 2 weeks and you'll pick it up from the Library.
NOTE: the rarer the material is, the less likely they'll send it. Also, the less libraries will have the item in their collection. If we have to source something internationally, we may charge you for the cost of shipping. However, we are in Los Angeles. We have access to LAPL, UCLA, USC, UC System, and more. Most items are likely found locally.
Students can print from any of our computers (mobile printing is not available at this time). Once you print the item, a pop-up window will prompt you to log in using your MI username and password. Once you enter that information in, your page(s) will automatically print. Please note that these costs will be applied to your student account:
1) Black and White: $0.10/page
2) Color: $0.25/page
These costs help us cover the cost of software, paper and ink, and maintenance fees. These fees will be applied to students' accounts on a weekly basis. Please contact the Librarian with any questions about these costs or instructions on how to print.
One of the unique features of the Library is that we are not a quiet Library. We ask that students don't disturb others, but students can speak and practice respectfully within the Library. For students who have or borrow an electric instrument, we have 20 practice stations available.
The library only provides sources of data relevant to the research query; we do not provide personal expertise or advise as for instance in lieu of a copyright attorney, or expert in a field etc.
