Computing at LHS – Chicago
Computers and Available Applications
Library computers are for UIC students, faculty, and staff. Computers require a UIC netid and password to log in.
Internet access is available from all library computers.
Increasingly, library computers have ACCC lab software packages (Microsoft Office, etc.).
A scanner is available for use by UIC students, faculty and staff in the Class of 1941 Lab (room 104). The scanner is installed on the far left computer.
Please set the scanner to read the flatbed, not the document feed.
Two express computers are available for guests of the library for health sciences research. Guests include:
- Corporate members
- Alumni Association members
- Rush University students, faculty, and staff
- Cook County residents and staff
- Patrons from affiliated universities and health sciences institutions
Express terminals are available for 30 minutes. Please request additional time from the reference librarian.
Borrow a Laptop
Notebook Borrowing Guidelines:
- Laptop computers are available at the Circulation Desk for use by UIC students. A valid i-card is required for check-out.
- Laptops may be borrowed for a period of four (4) hours, but cannot be removed from the Library. Renewals may be allowed, if availability permits. Laptops are available only on a first come, first served basis and cannot be reserved in advance.
- Overdue fines in the amount of twenty-five (25) dollars per hour will be assessed, if the laptop and all accessory items are not returned by the established time.
- The borrower accepts full responsibility of the laptop and its accessories while it is charged to them. In the event of lost or damaged equipment, a charge in the amount of the replacement or repair costs plus a 25 dollar processing fee will be assessed.
- Users are required to log-in with an established UIC netid and ACCC common password. Once the Odyssey Access Client Manager window is opened, it should be minimized but not closed.
- Data must be saved to an external device or emailed to a personal account. The Library is not responsible for the loss of data.
