Note: From May 20, 2019, to mid-July, some resources will be limited or unavailable:
- Student and public-use computer labs will be unavailable. Students and guests will still be able to access the internet via their own devices as usual, but the library will not have any computer stations or labs open to the public. The lab on the 3rd floor (Learning Space 320) will be used as staff space during this time, and the 2nd floor lab will be inaccessible.
- One uPrint print-release station (with black and white and color printing options) and one scanner are available in the south entrance lobby.
- Because computer labs are unavailable, temporary guest passes for computer use will not be issued during this time.
- Cash sales printing will not be available during this time. If you do not have a UND identification card, you will not be able to print materials.
See our longer blog post for more information.
There are computers available on every floor of the library; the main labs are on the 2nd and 3rd floors. They are equipped with Windows, Microsoft Office, SPSS, web browsers, and assorted other programs.
Chester Fritz Library has three collaborative workstations for group work available in some of the study rooms. Each workstation is mounted on a mobile cart with a 46-inch display. The workstations include a wireless keyboard and mouse. A webcam is integrated into each workstation for video group chat and conferencing. Additional software is available on Citrix.
Scanners are available on the 2nd floor, plus a specialized book scanner on the 4th floor in the Special Collections department. See scanning for more details.
The labs are open whenever the library is open.
Guest Computer Access
Guests may request access to library computers by asking for a temporary account at the Ask a Librarian Desk (during regular Ask a Librarian desk hours) or the Access Services desk on nights and weekends when the Ask a Librarian Desk is closed. You will need to provide a photo ID and either your email address or a phone number for verification. Guest access may be requested for a maximum of 30 days. If you would like to renew your guest pass, you will need to bring your photo ID to one of the service desks as noted above and request a renewal.
Who needs to request guest access to use library computers?
Emeritus and retired faculty/staff, alumni, and community members will need to request a temporary account. After affiliation with the University ends (e.g., retirement or graduation), a user's University account will be deactivated by University IT and will no longer work as a campus login.
Wireless Guest Access
If you are using your own device and would like wireless internet access, you may self-register for a temporary wireless network account. You will need a mobile phone in order to receive your verification and sign-in credentials. For questions or problems arising from using wireless guest access, contact the University IT Help Desk.
If you need help with the computers, scanners, or printers, ask at the Access Services or Ask a Librarian service desks on the second floor.
