Public Computers provided by the Library

42 public workstations are located on the Lower Level in the Learning Commons between the Learning Commons and Technical Support Desk and the Reference and Research Assistance Desk.  These computers are open to everyone and do not require a login.

The public workstations run Windows 7 and are equipped with Web browsers, Microsoft Office 2010, and Microsoft Student.

Scanners are available along the brick columns across from the public workstations.

Printing from Library PCs requires a UCard or guest card (available for purchase in the Learning Commons). Follow the instructions at the printing stations, or ask for assistance at the Ask Us desk.

Laptops are available for checkout from the Circulation Reserves desk on the lower level.
