Computers, Scanners, Printers

Public Workstations

There are computer workstations located near the Circulation Desk, in the Library Instruction Room (L-107), in the Trowbridge Reference Room, and on the ground floor near the stacks. All workstations run on Windows 7, are equipped with Microsoft Office desktop applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), and print to the printer on the 2nd floor in the Trowbridge Reference Room (outside the elevator).

If you need access to a computer equipped with special software for persons with disabilities, please ask at the Circulation Desk, call (203) 432-5288, or email

Wireless Access and VPN

All Yale University libraries offer wireless network access. Use YaleSecure for full access to all library resources (requires a Yale netID).

Guest Access

Access to publicly available resources, such as the Library catalog, via the YaleGuest network; for guests with sponsoring hosts see Guest Network Registration for full Internet access.


Three BookScan Stations, self-service and free of charge, are located on the Library's first floor (in the Library Instruction Room, L-107) and in Special Collections (ground floor).


You can print to the PaperCut printers from a cluster computer or from your own personal computer. The PaperCut driver creates one virtual printer. When you print to that virtual printer, you can release the document at almost any PaperCut printer on campus. You won't be charged until the document is released.

In the Yale Divinity School there are three PaperCut printers, one in the Library (on the second floor outside the elevator) and the other two in the School's Computer Lab.
