Many student-centered services valuable in previous libraries are no longer necessary. The “microcomputer lab” appeared in 1989 replacing the need for typewriters in the three typing rooms. The 58-cabinet card catalog was dismantled in 2002 when it became superfluous following the advent of the online catalog. Access to sources and assistance expanded dramatically in 1996 when the Library developed its first webpage. Milner Library was the first campus building to offer wireless access in 2004, allowing students to use or borrow laptops, tablets and other devices anywhere in the library.
