The library at Ex’pression College is full of great magazines, useful DVDs, fun video games, books of all kinds, and software-based tutorials. It is also where students come to obtain their textbooks, get tutored by our free drop-in tutors, and receive research or paper-writing assistance from the librarian. For assistance or questions regarding the library, checkouts, the resources, the catalog, or any other relevant queries, please contact Heidi at email@example.com or call 510.594.6955.
The library’s catalog is available online for searching:
New items are constantly being added to the library. Requests may be made by emailing or calling the librarian or in person. Acquisition of requests is not guaranteed.

All students have access to our Library Information Resource Network (LIRN). This is a web-research tool for students and staff to find and read a wide range of magazines/articles/books, etc. LIRN can be accessed through www.lirn.net.

Ebrary is a new resource available to students. It gives students, staff, and faculty access to thousands of e-books for free from anywhere with access to the internet. To access ebrary, go to http://site.ebrary.com/lib/wintzen and enter your Campus Computer Account (Network) to log in.
After their first week at Ex’pression, students have the privilege to check out 3 DVDs/video games and 4 books at a time.
DVDs/video games are due in 3 days; books are due in 7 days.
Books and video games may be renewed; DVDs may not be renewed on the same day. Books may be kept for up to 3 weeks as long as they are consistently renewed. Video games may be renewed 1 time. To renew books or video games, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 510.594.6955.
Fines and Fees:
Magazines that are not current (i.e. not in red binders) may be checked out for 3 days and late fees are $.50 per day.
Library overdue fines are $1 per day per DVD/video game and $.50 per day per book.
The library has a slot in its door where patrons may return items if the library is closed.
Once a patron has reached $10 in fines, their account is suspended until this amount has been paid. Any student with fines attempting to graduate will not receive his diploma until their fines are paid.
Any time a student checks an item out of the library, he is responsible for that item. Any item that is lost, damaged, or unreturned becomes the financial responsibility of the student who checked it out. This consists of paying for the price of the item, plus an additional processing fee of $35.
GE textbooks are on loan for only the length of the term in which the student is registered in the class. If the class is dropped or the student has to retake it, the book still needs to be returned at the end of the term. Not returning a GE textbook will result in a fine – the price of the book with an additional $35 processing fee.
