Using Computers in the Library
Four of our Windows PCs allow guests to use them for a maximum of 3 hours per day. Guests may inquire about computer access at the Information Desk.
The entire library has excellent wireless coverage. A few spots on the second floor (book stacks) and lower level have weaker signals, but users generally find a solid connection anywhere in the building. Help with Drake Wireless setup.
The library’s printers use Drake’s managed print system.
Printer use is very heavy during the first and last few weeks of each semester, and there is often a printing rush immediately before classes on weekdays. The library’s microform readers can print to the campus print system. More about copying, printing, and scanning at the Library.
