Computers in the Library

The Library Computers located at all Olivet sites consist of Microsoft Windows computers with programs to support academic work, including Internet access, document editing software, email and Internet access. All currently registered Olivet University students may use the computers. There are computer stations in the Library for public use for patron research and individual stations for library staff. Ipads are available for borrowing for 2 hours for use in the library.

Computers may be used on a first-come-first-serve basis, though priority is given to reference activity. Students are encouraged to save their files to an external drive or use a cloud storage account; files saved on the computer hard drive are subject to deletion when the computers are shut down. Students should use virus-free components, as viruses may cause serious damage.

Hard disks should not be tampered with, nor should any programs and software be added to or copied from computer hard drives.
