Public Computers and Laptops
For UTHSC faculty, staff and students, desktop computers are available here:
- Research Alcove (2nd floor, east) – 8 iMacs with Internet access, Microsoft Office, and Adobe Acrobat Professional.
- Electronic Classroom (3rd floor across from elevator) – Currently 6 iMacs available when instruction classes aren’t scheduled. As of January 2015, we are waiting on furniture adjustments. Ultimately this room will have 12 iMacs
5 Dell Laptops and 5 MacBooks are available for checkout and use inside the library by UTHSC students. Laptops can be used for 8 hours or until the battery runs down.
Special note regarding saving files: if you save a file to one of the library’s computers and you want to keep it, make sure you save it to a USB drive or email the file to yourself. Our computers automatically restart after 15 minutes of inactivity. Once restarted, any file you might have placed on the computer will be deleted and cannot be retrieved.
As of January 2015, we also have 10 iPad Minis for 2-week checkout. See http://librarydev.uthsc.edu/information/ipads/ for more information.
