Approximately 35 computers are available for student use on the 2nd floor of the library. Additional computers are available in the classroom, LR220; when this room is not otherwise in use and staffing is adequate, it may be opened for general use. Please check signs on the door or ask a librarian if you are unsure.
Computers are loaded with Windows 7; Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome; Microsoft Office 2010 Professional; and JAWS. If you require specialized software (such as Adobe Creative Suite), please check with other computer labs.
Signing in to computers
Sign in to the computers using your student ID number beginning with a W, and the same password you use for eServices, D2L and other campus services.
Waiting for computers
If you see a computer that is unoccupied and there is no line, you may sit down and sign in to the computer. If all computers are in use, a line forms near the Research Help desk.
