Public computers

Computers available in Newman Library include:

  • 10 express access public computers (iMacs) by the Circulation Desk on the 2nd floor.
    • 60 minute use time
    • Alert the user to restart after 60 minutes of inactivity
    • These computers are logged in automatically and therefore cannot have any Virginia Tech licensed software
  • Many Windows-based computers throughout the 2nd floor commons, and on the 3rd and 5th floors by the elevators
    • No time limits on use
    • Greater selection of software installed for Virginia Tech students, staff, and faculty with a PID and password

Computers in Newman Library are set to print to the photocopier/printer units located behind the main elevators on the first through fourth floors, and to the right of the elevators on the fifth floor.

Public patrons can log in with a generic password posted on each computer; a smaller selection of software is available to those not affiliated with Virginia Tech.

Users should always log off or restart any public computers after use to protect personal information from being accessed by the next user.

Newman Library computers are maintained by the TLOS Computer-Integrated Learning Spaces unit.
