Computers and Software

Information Commons

PCs and Macs

There are 142 Windows and 36 Mac desktops computers in the 1st floor Information Commons. In addition to these PCs, there are also several public-access Quick Look up computers on the Ground, 1st and 2nd floors that have limited access to the library's databases and websites with certain domains (.edu, .gov).

Laptops

Check out one of our laptops to use in the library. Laptops are available at the 1st floor Circulation Desk for current UTC students, faculty, and staff with their valid MOCS card. These laptops allow wireless access to the internet from anywhere in the library and include Microsoft Office applications and other software (see list below). 

Windows Software

All Information Commons desktops and Check-Out Desk laptops are equipped with the software listed below. We are happy to help with software as much as we can. However, because of the complexity of many software packages (especially MS Office and SPSS), we encourage you to use the built-in help features and to search for help and tutorials online. Google is an excellent resource for "SPSS tutorial" or "Word styles and headings" or even "Excel chart wizard."
