Public computers

Computers are available in Newman Library and all of the branches for our patrons' use. (You can see which computers are open and available to use.) Computers in Newman Library are set to print to the photocopier/printer units located behind the main elevators on the first, second, and fourth floors.

Newman computers are maintained by TLOS and now have a greater selection of software installed for Virginia Tech users with a PID/password. Public patrons can log in with a generic password posted on each computer; they have a smaller selection of software available to them. (Also see our page on software available in Torgersen labs.)
