There are several public-access Quick Look Up computers on the 1st and 2nd floors of the library. These Windows desktops do not require log-ins and allow for limited access to the library's databases and websites with certain domains (.edu, .gov).

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

Important Notice about Saving Files

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).
