The Library has nearly a hundred computer workstations and thirty laser printers for use by patrons. WiFi wireless connectivity is available in most areas of the library, in addition to over five hundred internet jacks. 

Printers & Laptop Printing

Printers are available throughout the Library, configured to print jobs from the computers in their immediate vicinity. Printing from laptop computers is also supported. Laptop printing jobs are routed to specifically designated "network" printers.  There are two such network/laptop printers in the library. As shown on the , one is located in the 4th floor copy room (next to the Reference Desk) and one is located on the 2nd floor (in the copier alcove just inside the Fishman Periodical Room). A color printer is located on the 2nd floor (in the Microforms Room).   Additional printers, including another color printer, can be found in the computer lab in the basement of Wasserstein Hall. The installation of a print client is also necessary to print from your laptop. Links to directions on how to install the print client can be found here.
