Computing, Scanning, and Printing


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.

Files can be saved to a flashdrive, sent to your email, or sent to the printers.
