Computers in the Library

 

Wireless Coverage
The entire library is covered by Missouri S&T's wireless access points allowing Missouri S&T affiliates the ability to use their wireless devices anywhere within the building.  Additionally, for visiting patrons, free and open wireless is provided in the front lobby area.  New for 2006, the library also has 15 new Dell laptops that we are loaning out for two hours at a time to Missouri S&T affiliates so that they might experience mobile wireless connectivity anywhere in the library.  If you have a laptop without wireless capabilities, we also have dozens of networks drops for you to plug into through the building.

 

Web Terminals
At the front of the library near the reference desk is a grouping of web terminals which have been specially constructed to help you get your research done in a hurry.  They do not include any productivity software, but are designed to enable Missouri S&T patrons to quickly look up items in the catalog or grab an article from any of our numerous electronic journals and print it out conveniently on a dedicated printer.

 

Public Access Machines
In 2005, Sprint (now Embarq) donated a special DSL line to enable public access computing within the Missouri S&T Library.  If you are a public patron and wish to access the internet on one of these machines, please request access at the front circulation desk.  Located a few rows of shelving back from the Web Terminals, these machines also feature a dedicated printer.

 

Computer Learning Center (CLC)
The library is host to one of the largest and most popular CLC's on campus.  With typical operating hours of 8 AM to midnight, seven days a week, these machines are always available for when you need them.  Located on the second floor of the library, these machines have the full compliment of productivity and scientific software that the other CLC's on campus do.  Additionally, there are two printers and a scanner for students use in this facility.

 

Emerson Multimedia Center
This area is host to two of the fastest machines on campus specifically designed for video editing and high-end graphics work.  Both machines, a Mac and a PC, are equipped with dual monitors and DVD burners.  The center also features poster printing, large format scanning and laminating services.  To learn more about this center you can click here.
