Are there computers in the Library?
OPAC computers are on kiosks at eye level so students can quickly find information such as searching the book catalog. These computers are for research only and are not loaded with Microsoft Office programs. So that means no Microsoft Word or Powerpoint on the OPAC Computers only.
Open area computers are on several serpentine tables throughout the Library and can be used by students at any time the Library is open, but are shut down at approximately 15 minutes before the Library closes each day. They can be used for any type of research and for word processing, email, online classes, etc. These computers should not be used for games.
Computer classrooms LB 212 is the Library classroom. There will be a schedule of classes posted at the door These rooms can be used by students when there are no classes scheduled, but are shut down at approximately 15 minutes before the Library closes each day if open. They can be used for any type of research and for word processing, email, online classes, etc. These computers should not be used for games.
Laptop computers are available for use inside the Library, for 2 hours at a time. They can be signed out from the Circulation Desk and students should return them to the Circulation Desk at least 15 minutes before closing. If you use a Library owned laptop you are able to print your work.
Student-owned laptop computers can be used inside or outside of the Library in the atrium since the wireless pods extend access to the internet throughout the Library and into the atrium outside. To be able to set up your laptop to work with the college system you can find instructions on the HCCC Student Intranet under Computer Support There you will find Wireless Instructions for Vista/Windows7, XP and MACs. This does not give access to the College’s printers.
