Both the Library and IT Services work hard to provide the technology you need to get your research done.
A computer lab with both Macs and PCs is located on the first floor of the lobby. Additional computers can be found on the second and third floors. College students, faculty, and staff can log on using their SMC usernames and passwords. Guests can request to use two computers located at the reference desk for their research needs.
