How to Use Iwasaki Library This Semester

Welcome back to Emerson! There are some new things you should know about using the Iwasaki Library this fall. For more info and the latest updates, be sure to bookmark our Flex Learning page.

New Look

We have a brand new website! Chick it out at

Studying in the Library

  • All library visitors must check in at the Service Desk upon arrival.
  • Seating in the library is by appointment. You can book a study space or computer using Spacebook.
  • During your visit, please remember to wear your mask correctly, maintain social distance, and refrain from eating or drinking.


You can now print in the library from your own computer or mobile device. No appointment is needed to print, but you still need to check in at the Service Desk before heading to the printers (which have moved.) See the Print from Anywhere IT Help Desk article for instructions.

Books & DVDs

If you want to borrow a book from the library, fill out the Request Item for Pickup form first. You’ll get an email alerting you that the item is ready; head to the library Service Desk and pick it up. No appointment needed! If you need help selecting a book, email for assistance.


Most reserves are online this semester and linked in your Canvas course; ask your professor if you’re not sure where to find them.

In the case of items not available in an online format, use our Request a Scan form to request digital copies of articles and book chapters from our physical and microfilm collections, which are emailed directly to you. Students are limited to one chapter per book, per day, with a maximum of three requests per day.

Research Assistance

Librarians are here to help answer any questions you have in your academic and creative work. Open to all members of the Emerson community, all reference questions will be answered electronically via email (, chat, or Zoom appointment.
