  3. Go to a Library printer and enter your netname on the screen to start photocopying or scanning.

Access to computers & printing

If you have your Alumni ID card:

  1. Fill in the guest account form in-person at either Library to obtain a netname, password and loader key.
  2. Go to the Loans & Returns or Circulation Desk to get your netname activated.

This grants you access to computers for the following 1 month. For access each subsequent month, you must return to the Loans or Circulation Desk with your netname and Alumni ID card to receive an additional 1 month of access.

For alumni without an Alumni ID card:

  1. Fill in the guest account form in-person at either Library to obtain a netname, password and loader key.
  2. Go to the Loans & Returns or Circulation Desk to get your netname activated.

This grants you access to computers for the following 4 hours on the same day (no same-day renewals). For 4 hours of access on any day thereafter, you must return to the Loans or Circulation Desk and present a valid ID* along with your guest netname.

* Driver's license with an address or photo ID with some proof of residence (e.g., utility bill).
