Computers, Scanners, Printers

Public Workstations

Computers are available near the Circulation Desk, in the Trowbridge Reference Room (second floor), and on the ground floor (near the stacks and in Special Collections). All computers run on Windows 10, are equipped with Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Office desktop applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Endnote, and several other software applications. All public workstations print by default to BluePrint public printer located on the first floor.


You can print in black and white or in color from any public workstations or your own laptop computer to a BluePrint/PaperCut printing cluster located on the first floor of the Library. Two more printers are located in the YDS Computer Lab.
