There are four print stations that provide 10 minute sessions.  The remaining computers provide 30 minutes when you log in.  COMPUTERS WILL LOG OUT AFTER 30 MINUTES.  Additional. 30 minute sessions are permitted if no other students are waiting.  To extend your time please ask at the circulation desk.

Students will need to purchase a GoPrint print card in order to print from Library computers.  Prints cost $.10 a page.

No more than two people may occupy a single computer station at one.

Two computers have been set aside to support DSPS needs, DSPS have priority regarding access to these computers.
