The Library is committed to providing accessible spaces, resources, and services. If you need assistance, please visit a service desk (located on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd floors), call us at 719.549.2333, or email us.

Computers

60 computer workstations are available on the 1st and 2nd floors. Users must log in with their eAccount username and password. LID cardholders may use computer workstations in front of the Research Help Desk on the 2nd floor.

Printing and Scanning

Printers are located on the 1st and 2nd floors. Wireless printing is not available in the library. Users may print from a library computer workstation or from USB.

To copy or scan documents on the large printers, users must log into the machine by swiping their ThunderCard. A limited number of small flatbed scanners are connected to computer workstations on the 1st and 2nd floors. Users requiring the scanner have priority for these machines.

Students receive a printing balance of 35 pages per credit hour each semester. Money can be added to the cardholder's printing balance at the ValuePort machine located on the 1st floor of the library, or through Auxiliary Services, located on the 2nd floor of the Occhiato Student Center.
