The UTEP Library supports the History Department and the El Paso educational community by offering information literacy instruction to middle school and high school students participating in National History Day competitions. These guidelines will help the library staff serve these students effectively.
Handouts are available to help students prepare for their library visit. Teachers are welcome to edit these handouts to suit their own students.
The method in which community users can make copies has changed. Copy machines take coins and $1 bills. It is recommended for students to bring single $1 bills if they wish to make photocopies.
Students have a variety of ways to saved articles for their research:
We also recommend taking photos of the pages with their cell phones or tablets. We recommend two apps that can assist in this: CamScanner or Microsoft Lens. Both are free and we recommend students get permission from their parents or guardians before downloading either.
School buses are NOT allowed on the campus. Students must be dropped off on the outer perimeter of the campus and walk into the campus. School buses do not have permission to stay in parking lot. They must drop you off and return for you. From this location, it should take approximately 10-15 minutes for you to reach the UTEP Library.
We are currently experiencing a lot of construction on campus. If any changes take place, the maps will be updated ASAP and the changes are visually verified. Please check updated dates for the following notes:
**The elevator in the Pedestrian Bridge tower also has stairs.
Across from the UTEP Library, we have several restaurants which students can purchase their lunch from. They include: El Sazon and Chick-Fil-a.
UTEP students cause a rush from 11 to 1 pm for lunch. For this reason, it is recommended that you keep your students options to everything, but burgers or sandwiches. These take time to make and your students may run out of time. We highly recommend that you give them a heads up about how many of your students plan to buy food to have it ready.
El Sazon (Mexican): Burritos up to $4, Plates up to $7
Chick-Fil-a: $8-9 for 8 ct nugget meal.
