Library Computers

The computing and networking facilities in the Mercy College Library are provided to support the educational and curriculum-related research needs of Mercy College. The Library supports free access to research materials and the use of computing technologies to identify, locate and use scholarly resources.

The number of computer workstations is limited. The Library reserves the right to reclaim workstations being used for personal or recreational purposes, such as email or surfing the World Wide Web, and to reassign them to patrons who need to locate or access research materials or complete coursework assignments. Computer lab work stations are available for uses other than research.

Users are asked not to change computer settings, download software, create desktop icons or otherwise alter computer work stations.
