The library’s open computer lab contains 36 computers, a black-and-white printer, color printer, and 2 scanners. The computer lab operates according to library hours, but computers will begin the shutdown process 15 minutes before closing time. Remember to save your work before the computers shut down and retrieve your flash drive! University computers are reserved for school work related purposes. If the lab is at capacity and you are using a computer for personal rather than school use, you may be asked to log off so that another student may work.  All students are required to comply with the university’s policy on proper use of computer resources.
