Computers for Students
The library provides computers with Internet access and software for word processing, spreadsheets, databases, and presentations. Currently enrolled students of the UH System may use these computers by logging in with their 8-digit student ID number.
Access may be restricted if a student has financial obligations of $10.00 or more. Students will be required to acknowledge and abide by the library's Computer Use Policy. The library's PCs are also used by the librarians to teach research classes, therefore computers may be unavailable at times. When access to library PCs is not available, we recommend that students use the Student Computer Lab (Building 2, Room 405). Student computers are also available at the Native Hawaiian Center (Building 20).
The cost is 10¢ per page. Laser printing is available from all computers. Printouts may be picked up and paid for at the circulation payment window. (Wireless printing is not currently available.)
