Software on the Computers in the Library

There are computer labs and printers on all three floors of the library both Mac and Windows platforms. Information Technology provides a list of the software in those labs.  Click or tap HERE for the current list.

Printing and Scanning at the Library

Printers:  Each registered student is automatically given 300 sheets of paper of free printing per semester.  After the 300 sheets are used, extensions at the rate of 100 sheets are granted through an online form. There are printers in each of the computer lab areas. The printers default to two-sided printing. If you need single-sided printing or have any other printer issues, stop by or call the Library  (610-683-4480). 

Scanners:  Scanners are available in the Library.  On the Ground Floor there is a scanner in the Curriculum Materials Center.  On the First Floor in the area next to the Computer Lab there are two scanners. 

Scanning is free. Images can be saved to a portable storage device or emailed.
