Some Notes About the Computer Classroom

The Library is pleased to provide students access to 64 computers in our Computer Classroom, located in the northeast corner tower. Every computer is connected to the Internet and contains Microsoft Office 2003 software. There are two high-speed printers in the Classroom, which produce black-and-white, double-sided print jobs, free of charge.

There are a few things you should know about the Computer Classroom:
  • The librarians teach classes in this room on a regular basis. When a class is scheduled, we use folding room dividers to block off the computers we need. If you see the dividers set up, chances are a class is going to be taught soon. For advance notice of when classes are scheduled, look at the room dividers: a bright pink sign lists classes for the current week.
  • Professors, if you're interested in arranging a library instruction session for your students, check the Computer Classroom schedule to see if your preferred date is available. Then, fill out our online class request form for each class section you wish to bring to the Library.
  • All of the Library's computers are open to anyone, but please remember that the primary purpose of our computers is to assist students with their academic work. If the Library is crowded and you are surfing the Internet, you may be asked to give up your seat to someone who needs to write a paper.
  • Headphones are required to listen to audio on our computers. The Library no longer lends out headphones for sanitary reasons. You may either bring your own from home or purchase earbuds at the Circulation Desk for $2.00.
