    Only Students, Faculty, Staff, and Alumni are permitted in the library computer lab area and only when doing university-related business.  Do not download any software onto campus computers. All software must be approved and installed by Help Desk technicians. This includes instant messaging services. Community Borrowers and Local Teacher Patrons are limited to using the computers to access our library catalog. No other computer access or function is permitted. Don’t forget to bring your flash drive with you to the library. The library does not provide flash drives. It is suggested that you email your coursework to yourself as well as save it to a flash drive as flash drives can become corrupted or otherwise damaged.

    Patrons can make photocopies of their documents for $0.10 per page. Copies can be paid with a copy card (which can be purchased at the Circulation Desk) or with US $1 bills and coins. The copier only copies in black and white. If you are in need of color copies please visit Printing Services.  
  • Printing
    Printing is limited to one original copy. Additional copies may be made using the photocopiers available at the front of the Library. CLU Students may print from any computer in the Pearson Library using their GoPrint accounts. Community Members may use Printing Services for their printing needs, or visit their local public library. For their convenience, staff and faculty have a limited amount of funds available on their GoPrint accounts to print at the library, and in any labs on campus. However, the bulk of staff and faculty printing should be done at their department office.
