Are there computers in the Library?
The Library has a number of different areas for computer use by students.
OPAC computers are on kiosks at eye level so students can quickly find information such as searching the book catalog. These computers are for research only and are not loaded with Microsoft Office programs.
Open area computers are on several serpentine tables throughout the Library and can be used by students at any time the Library is open, but are shut down at approximately 15 minutes before the Library closes each day. They can be used for any type of research and for word processing, email, online classes, etc. These computers should not be used for games.
Computer classrooms, LB108 and LB212, are sometimes used for Library instructional classrooms. There will be a schedule of classes posted at the doors when the rooms will be closed for classes. These rooms can be used by students when they are open, but are shut down at approximately 15 minutes before the Library closes each day if open. They can be used for any type of research and for word processing, email, online classes, etc. These computers should not be used for games.
Laptop computers are available for use inside the Library, for 2 hours at a time. They can be signed out from the Circulation Desk and students should return them to the Circulation Desk at least 15 minutes before closing.
Student-owned laptop computers can be used inside or outside of the Library in the atrium since the wireless pods extend access to the internet throughout the Library and into the atrium outside. To be able to set up your laptop to work with the college system you can find instructions on the MyHerkimer documents area. There you will find Wireless Instructions for Vista/Windows7, XP and MACs. This does not give access to the College’s printers.
