Computers, Printing, Scanning, Wi-fi

The second floor of the LRC has approximately 35 computers available for student use, along with 2 printers and 5 photocopiers.

Signing in to computers

Sign in to the computers the same way you sign in to eServices, D2L, and Los Rios Gmail: your student ID number, beginning with a “W”, and your password.

Waiting for computers

  • If you see a computer that is unoccupied and there is no line, you may sit down and sign in to the computer.
  • If all computers are in use, a line forms near the Research Help desk.

Software

Computers are loaded with:

  • Windows 7
  • Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari
  • Microsoft Office 2010 Professional
  • JAWS

If you require specialized software (such as Adobe Creative Suite), please check with other computer labs.

Special Computers

Express Computers

To assist users who need to print a document, reset their password, or accomplish other quick tasks, two express computers are available. You may use these computers for up to 15 minutes.

ADA Stations

Two computers loaded with assistive software (Kurzweil, etc.) are reserved at all times for students with disabilities. Training for these programs and the password needed to sign in to the computers are available from DSPS.

Printing

Payment

  • Black-and-white printing is available at $0.10/page.
  • Pay in cash (recommended) or with Student Access cards onto which you have loaded money.
  • You can get change for up to $5 bills at the Circulation Desk. To get change for larger bills, go to the Business Office in Rodda North.

Sending your print job

  • If you are using a library computer, after you click “Print” on your document, a print job will show up at the printer pay station with your Student ID number on it.
  • To print from your own laptop or other device, or from outside the library, you need to use the GoPrint Mobile Cloud Print service.

For information on this service, see Information Technology’s Wireless GoPrint page.

Copying

There are 5 photocopiers on the second floor. The copiers will accept bills ($1 or $5 only) and coins (no pennies). You can also pay with a Student Access card onto which you have loaded money. Posters near the photocopiers illustrate the process, including two-sided (duplex) copying and adjusting copy size.

Scanning

Photocopiers #3 and #5 allow scanning to USB drive. Instructions for this process are available at the copiers, or you may download the handout (pdf file).

On the first-floor Instructional Media room, a scanner connected to a computer is available for use.

Note: Many of the materials held in the Library are protected by copyright. When making copies, you must observe copyright law as defined by Title 17, U.S. Code. The Library does not supervise the use of photocopiers on its premises.

Connecting to Wi-Fi

The LRCCD network provides Internet access to students using their own devices. Please see SCC Information Technology’s Wireless page for details on connecting.
