Library Computer Resources

The Lonas library has:

  • 18 desktop computers in its computer lab;
  • 16 student laptop computers, kept at the desk, available for check out and use in the library only;
  • two additional laptops reserved for faculty use.

For classroom instruction, the lab also has an overhead projector that can be connected to a laptop by an HDMI cable. Instructors may borrow the projector remote and cable from the library front desk.

Audio-Visual Resources

All the Lonas library lab computers and laptops have DVD players. Headphones and computer mouse devices can be borrowed from the front desk.

For viewing on a larger screen, there are two television sets equipped with DVD and VHS players kept in the AV room (see the Meeting Rooms tab). Students may use the AV equipment in the library only; instructors may reserve the televisions to use in their classrooms or in the library.

Printing in the Library

Student printing at the Lonas campus is in the library. The library's dedicated student printer and computer lab are available during library access hours. The library's student laptops also print wirelessly to the student printer. Printing costs three cents ($0.03) per page.

Currently, printing is only available in black and white.


Photocopying and scanning

The library student printer also functions as a photocopier and scanner.

Photocopies cost five cents ($0.05) per page. Scanned jobs are sent to e-mail addresses entered by the user.
