After Hours & Weekend Parking!

Students are allowed entrance into the S. Roman St. garage at 4:30pm on weekdays and all day on weekends. This is the closest garage to the library and since it is covered, you wonÔÇÖt likely need an umbrella during inclement weather. If the gate to the main parking entrance is closed, you would have to enter through the left lane of the parking garageÔÇÖs?áEXIT. You will need your?ágate card?áin order to enter. Street parking is enforced on?áSaturdays, so if you forget your gate card remember to feed the meter.

Parking Meters

The modern parking meters accept dollar bills and debit/credit cards, which prints out a receipt for you to place on your dashboard. The cost is?á$1.50 per hour?áfor two-hour meters and?á$1?áper hour for long-term parking meters. If a meter is broken, you now have the option of going to another meter but still choosing the spot of your choice, as long as it is not a restricted parking spot.

Printing @ Ische

Printing can seem like a complicated process; however after you do it once youÔÇÖll be an expert! Below is the 4-step process:


Prior to printing, go to the bookstore to get your ID formatted in order to add money to it.


Purchase a Pay Paw card for $1 from the Pay Paw machine itself, located on the 3rd floor of the library.


Add money to your formatted ID/Pay Paw card by adding cash directly to your card through the Pay Paw machine or by doing so through the Pay PawÔÇÖs online system.


Sending a print job

When you print in either the Library Commons or in the Library, you will be asked to select a printer (3rd or 4th floor) and to give your print job a name and password. This is simply to identify your print job from others, so name it whatever you want. You can use the same name and password for multiple print-jobs. All print jobs are defaulted to black & white, single-sided sheets so please see specific instructions below for double-sided and color printing options.


Retrieving a print job

Go to the location you sent your print job (3rd or 4th floor print station). ?áSwipe your card on the card reader. Select your print-job name and press “Print.ÔÇØ Enter the password you created when you sent the print job. Your print job will be distributed and your card will be charged.


Single-sided = 10?ó per page

Double-sided = 14?ó per page?á(Select Preferences on printing screen, Click Finishing tab, then CHECK box by ÔÇ£Print on both sidesÔÇØ)

Color = 25?ó per page (Select Preferences on printing screen, Click Color tab, then UNCHECK the ÔÇ£Print in GrayscaleÔÇØ box)

**Note ÔÇô The Pay Paw machine only accepts dollar bills in increments of $1, $5 or $20.

Coins are NOT accepted.

Please stop by the Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor of the library for assistance.

Temp closure of main S. Roman St. Parking Garage Stairwell

The 1st through 3rd floors of the S. Roman Street Parking Garage will be closed between 6pm on Friday May 24th until 6pm on Sunday May 26th. The closure is due to much needed painting of the handrails and walls. Two alternate stairwells in the parking garage will remain open, as well as the elevator.

The 6th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Got Drugs? ThatÔÇÖs the question the National Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative is asking. The program promotes an opportunity to properly dispose of expired and unneeded prescription drugs. In recent years, over 2 million pounds of prescription drugs were taken out of circulation and disposed of properly. ?áAccording to the Environmental Protection Agency, there has been no evidence of human health effects from prescription drug remnants on the environment thus far, however precautionary measures are still in affect to prevent cases from developing. So while you embark on this year’s spring cleaning, keep prescription drugs in mind.

Sad news for coffee lovers

The last official day to buy Starbucks coffee and other goodies from the kiosk in the Resource Center building is today March 28th. The coffee kiosk in the atrium will remain open during their normal hours. There will be a few small changes in the cafeteria until an agreement in the food service department is reached.

These same changes will take place at the Dental location.




Street Closure/ Traffic Re-route (Roman Street Parking Garage)

There will be yet another temporary change in traffic on block of Roman Street between Tulane and Gravier starting Wednesday, March 20th. Below find the text from an email from facilities services.

The construction of the underground utility piping along South Roman Street continues. The contractor is nearing completion of pipe installation under the sidewalk this week and will commence trenching across South Roman Street at the intersection with Tulane Avenue at 6:00 AM on Wednesday morning, March 20, 2013. Consequently, South Roman Street will switch to two-way local traffic accessible only from the Gravier Street end. The parking garage entrance lanes and exit lanes will remain open. The intersection of Tulane Avenue and South Roman will be closed to traffic, therefore users should enter from the Gravier Street end and will exit that same direction when leaving. ?á A map illustrating the street and sidewalk closure can be viewed here:


Thank you for your patience.
