Library computers have priority uses according to their software or peripherals (e.g., scanners). If you are using a computer with a scanner for email, for example, and another person needs to scan, the Library staff may ask you to use another computer.

For your own security, please logout when you are finished with the computer.

Reservations for the use of the Media Stations

We recommend that you sign up for use of media stations with scanners, video equipment, the CD burner, or the color printer.

Reservations for use of the specialized media stations can also be made ahead of time, up to two weeks in advance.

Reservations for use of these special media stations will be available in two-hour blocks at a time, but no more than two a day, and cannot be four hours in a row (that is, not 2 two hour blocks in a row).
