Two computer labs are located on the 3rd floor of the library. When a computer lab is closed for classroom instruction, a sign will be posted in front of the computer lab at the beginning of the day, indicating when the lab will be closed on that day.

You can print from the computer labs, from your own device, or from the web. 

Wireless access to the law school’s online network is available throughout the library. Study rooms and study tables are equipped with power for laptops. Laptops can be formatted to print to the library printers.

Upload a document to your papercut account to print from the web. Choose the law library printer from the list then go to any printer in the library to print your document. It will already be uploaded to your account.
