Abell Library offers a variety of services to the Austin College community. The services listed below are exclusively available for Honors Students (those who have been nominated to complete an Honor's Thesis or Project by their department), and these are in addition to the services noted on the services for all students. If you need to contact a librarian or library staff member about any of the services noted below, click here for email addresses and phone numbers.
Your librarians are available to meet with honors students to discuss research techniques and possible resources to locate information for your specific thesis topic. Please schedule an appointment with any librarian to help you use research tools available at Abell Library and to obtain resources from other libraries.
As an honors student, you may opt for a semester-long checkout for books (instead of the standard 28-day checkout). This change is NOT automatic, so please check at the circulation desk with Abby MacFarlane (Circulation Supervisor) or Andrew Smith (Public Services Librarian) for more information on how to obtain this privilege. Be sure to check your due date receipts and reference any email notifications from the library about materials you have checked out.
Contact Donna Flatt (Assistant to the College Librarian) to reserve one of the library’s study rooms designated for honors students and to obtain a key. These rooms are located on the west wall of the second floor of the library and are typically shared by 3 honors students. Network ports are activated for laptop use in all of these rooms.
