As they are customized for quick printing, these machines only come with a Microsoft Office Viewer, rather than the full editing suite.

We do not store patron files on our desktops or laptops. Patron files inadvertently saved to library computers will disappear upon logging off. Library users have the following options for saving files: UTC MocsNet account, USB flash storage device, or a personal email account (mail an attachment to yourself).
