Computers in the Library
The Library has a number of different areas for computer use by students. ALL LIBRARY COMPUTERS AUTOMATICALLY SHUT DOWN 10 MINUTES BEFORE CLOSING. Please plan and save your work accordingly.
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 10 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 or chatting.
Computer classrooms, LB108 and LB212, are sometimes used for Library instructional classes. 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 10 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 or chatting.
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 10 minutes before closing.
Kobo E-Readers are now available for student use and they can be borrowed for 3 weeks. Free books are available from EBSCO and Springer and can be accessed by using the Library online catalog. See a Librarian for details!
Student-owned laptop computers can be used inside or outside of the Library in the walkway since the wireless servers extend access to the internet throughout the Library and into the glassed-in walkway outside. You must set up access to the network using one of the Wireless Setup Instructions for Windows XP/7, Vista or MAC found on the MYHerkimer under Documents & Forms/Information Technology/RTV/AV page. This setup will not give you access to the College’s printers. If you have trouble with this setup please see the technician in JH113 or call the Help Desk at extension 8555.← Return to Services
