Wireless Access


The IT department provides wireless access throughout the public areas of the library

The University and Library assume no responsibility for the safety and security of equipment or for wireless device configurations, security, or data files resulting from the connection to the University's network.

PLEASE don't leave your personal belongings unattended. The Library is not responsible for lost or stolen laptops, bookbags, or any other item.

It is not possible to print to the Library's printers from the wireless network. Save your work and email the file to yourself. You may then use a Library workstation to access your email and send print jobs to the printer. Guest printing costs 10 cents per page.

Coverage and Electrical Outlets

Wireless access is strongest in the public seating areas, and weakest in the middle of the stacks.

Electrical outlets are available throughout the Library. For safety reasons, keep power cords out of the public walkways.
