The Library has 43 workstations.
The ones located on the south wall, near the bookstacks windows, are dual-boot (Mac or PC).
All other workstations are PC boot, except for the back set of workstations near the stained glass windows, which are Mac boot.
The iMacs have Intel Core i5 quad-core processors and 21" 1920-by-1080 resolution screens. The screens offer a 1000:1 contrast ratio and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The computers are available to anyone with a SXU NetID and password.
The library also circulates 35 Mac laptops for use within the library. These may be borrowed from the circulation desk.
Anyone using the computers must comply with the SXU Acceptable Use Policy.
Do you have your own computer? Our library is designed around the computing needs of students. The entire Library is wireless, and there are dual outlets every ten feet in the reading-room floor. The group-study rooms have power and data ports.
The Library has six touchscreen scanners and document feeders. ALL SCANS ARE FREE. You are charged only if you print your documents. The state-of-the-art high-speed BookScan stations can scan documents up to ledger size in under five seconds at 200 dpi. The Bulletscan document feeders can copy up to 40 pages in duplex mode up to legal size in either color or black and white at 300 dpi.
Files can be saved to a flashdrive, sent to your email, or sent to the printers.
The Library has multiple printers, all designed for fast, efficient service for students. One is near the front doors, two are in the stacks, and one is upstairs near the group study rooms.
A black and white page is 15 cents; color is 60 cents.
The two black and white printers in the main level stacks are Kyocera Ecosys models. The one by the front door is a Kyocera C6728.
The color printer is a HP Color LaserJet CP6015xh. The normal quality print speed in color or black and white is up to 40 pages per minute with a resolution in either b&w or color up to 1200x600 dots per inch.
The wireless printer upstairs near the group study rooms is a black and white HP LaserJet P4015n. The normal print speed is up to 52 pages per minute with a resolution up to 1200x1200 dots per inch.
NOTE: You may send your print job from a laptop, and to other campus printers, using the Wireless Printing option.
NOTE: Google documents often add nonsense characters to the top of print jobs. For a clean print, consider saving your work and printing from a Word document.
PROCESS: Once a print job has been submitted from your workstation, select your initials from the screen of the release station, then highlight the document you desire, and hit Print. You then swipe your ID card to pay for the pages. Students start with $50 on your ID card. You can add dollars using the mySXU portal.
