McWherter Library has over 100 computers running Windows 10 on all 4 floors of the library, and black+white printers on every floor. Every floor has individual study spots for you to sit down, plug in, and get to work. 

  • The 1st floor Windows computers near the Research Help Desk are connected to the library's color printer.
  • The 2nd floor has 8 Mac computers in addition to many Windows computers.
  • The 4th floor is a Silent Zone - a perfect spot to focus.

These spots are first-come, first-served, but there is plenty of room for everyone! See which computers are available here.

Check out laptops, phone chargers, headphones, and more technology from the Check Out Desk at McWherter Library. All you need is your student ID.
