Internet & Computer Use


Internet Use: Internet access via networked computers or wireless is available for students and staff at the Eureka, Del Norte, and Mendocino Campus Libraries. On the Eureka Campus, wireless access extends through the LRC building, including the hallway and food-friendly foyer. All Internet and computer users in the Library, or in any part of the LRC, are subject to the same rules and restrictions and receive the same privileges. See Computer Use section below.

Internet access via networked computers or wireless is free and no password is required. However, to access library online databases and electronic resources such as e-books, authorization is required. All users accessing the databases via wireless will be prompted to login. Your Student ID number is your password.

Printing is not available through the wireless. You must use one of the networked computers if you want to send anything to the printers. Various types of removable storage media (USB, disks, etc.) are available at the Circulation Services Desk if you need to save your work for printing from a networked computer. Visit this page for more information about printing and photocopying.
