In addition to services listed on the Circulation Services
and the Reference Services
pages, and our collections of library materials
and online research tools
, the library has these other services and resources.
These services have been moved from the library:
Computers – Desktops, Laptops, and iPads
- Desktop computers are available throughout the library. Most are Windows computers; some are Macs. They can be used for performing online research and for working on course assignments using Microsoft Office applications. You do not need to sign up to use the computers. Some computer stations use a wireless network connection — you need to use your UH username and password to log-in to the wireless system.
Apple Mac Pro computers with specialized software for doing course projects for the Digital Art class and the Digital Media and Television Production programs are available on both floors. Students working on such projects have priority for using these computers.
Leeward CC students can borrow laptop computers from the Circulation Desk for use on campus for up to four hours.
Most are Windows; a few are Macs.
Laptops have web browsers and Microsoft Office applications. Laptop use is governed by the laptop policy Overdue fines are charged for laptops not returned when due. Laptops must be returned before the library closes.
Library desktop and laptop computers have special security software that automatically erases anything saved to the hard drive when the computer is restarted, including reboots of frozen computers. You should save your work on a USB memory device. Other options for saving your work include a cloud storage serviceor e-mailing your files to yourself, although using a USB drive will give you a better chance at recovering your work in the event of a computer malfunction or a power failure.
iPads are now available for up to four hours.
For people with impaired vision, we have one computer with the ZoomText screen magnifying program, and one computer with the JAWS screen reader.
The UH Information Technology Resources policy governs usage of all library computers.
