Find Books Fast! Introducing Quick Check Computers

The Millsaps-Wilson Library provides a convenient way to look up books in the library:  The Quick Check Computer. The newest Quick Check Computer is a laptop located at the library's front desk.  This station is designed to provide an easy way to search for books using the Millsaps Library Catalog.

In addition to the new Quick Check station, a second station is located on the 3rd Floor-West area of the library.

These computers require no personal logins, as they are logged in and ready to search our online catalog.  If you have any questions or need help finding a call number, ask a Librarian for assistance.
