The Library has seven computer workstations in the John P. Wilson Reading Room on the second floor for accessing the Library Catalog, licensed databases, and other computer resources. You can use the Available Computers page to see which of these computers are currenlyt available. To use one of the Library's computers, you must log in with your CNetID. Users without an active CNetID may use the computers with a temporary login. See the Library's computer access page for more information. Printing is available at an adjacent workstation for ten cents per page using a Chicago card or vended card obtained from the Reserve Collections Room across from the Circulation Desk.
Researchers needing to search the Library Catalog only may use the designated workstation in the Reserve Collections Room.
All Library workstations run Microsoft Office 2007. If you have any problems, such as converting Word documents, please see the Library's Office 2007 help page.
For more information about using computers in other campus libraries, see the Library's Computing Services page.
For information on wireless access for visiting researchers, see the Library's page on Visitor Access to the University's Wireless Network and the Library's Licensed Online Resources.
The Law School operates a computer lab, for the use of law students only, on the third floor. All machines have word processing, web browsing, and email software. The computers in the lab require a Law School login, which is different from the CNetID. Questions about logging into these computers should be directed to the Lab Manager in the third floor computer lab.
Most carrels and reading tables in the library are furnished with Ethernet jacks for law students to use laptop computers to access the Internet and laser printers in the computer lab. Questions about connecting laptops to the network should be directed to the Lab Manager in the third floor computer lab or by telephone at 702-4493. The Law School has a wireless network which is available in the second floor Wilson reading room and at study tables and carrels on the upper floors. To access the wireless network, you must log in with your CNetID.
The LexisNexis/Westlaw printers for Law School students are located in the third floor computer lab.
Additional information for Law School faculty and students is available on the Law School's Information Technology page.
