|CoLab (Collaboration Lab)|
The library has a resource for TLU groups collaborating on projects. The library's CoLab is immediately to your right as you exit the library. TLU students, faculty, and staff have access to two PCs that are loaded with specialized multimedia software (Adobe and Microsoft) that can help to create and edit projects. Both PCs have a mike/headphone set for recording voice-overs or listening to sound. Stand-alone PCs are connected to a color poster printer and to a color copier/scanner/printer. A 5-person Group Table/LCD Screen can accommodate up to four bring-your-own laptops for collaborating on group presentations. CoLab laptops can also be checked out at the Circulation Desk. The CoLab also has two "brainstorming" erase boards that can be used to separate groups. The CoLab may be used on a first-come, first-served basis. Library personnel are available to assist patrons.

Free borrowing cards are available to TLU alumni, area ministers, and teachers in the Seguin community. The library also honors TexShare borrowing cards from other academic libraries.
