TIP: Most college libraries will not allow you to check out books, so plan your trips carefully.  Check the online catalogs beforehand and print out the records for the books you want to use.  Allow yourself plenty of time, and take plenty of spare change for photocopying & printing.

SUPER BONUS TIP: If you use the periodical databases while at a college library, you can save printing costs by emailing the articles to yourself.  Just test it to make sure your spam filter doesn't block the messages.
