Guest Computers

A number of computers equipped with internet access and the Microsoft office suite available to guests are located on the 1st floor in the lobby and in the 2nd and 3rd floor book stacks areas.

Guests may access the non-login computers for academic research only. Use of library computers by guests for non-academic purposes (i.e. recreation) is expressly prohibited, and guests may be asked to verify that they are using a computer for academic research purposes only. Tulane students, faculty and staff have priority over guests in cases where an insufficient number of computers are available in the library. We reserve the right to limit the amount of time that a guest may occupy a computer; normally this should not exceed two hours per day.
