University Libraries provides access to both PC and Mac desktop computers. Use the Computer Finder to locate an open work station. A current UNM NetID is required to log in to most library computers. Work stations are loaded with MS Office applications and most other standard software.
Machines in the Centennial Science and Engineering Library and the Fine Arts and Design Library also offer access to specialized software for science, math, music, game development, and more. Browse our libraries' available software titles or search for a specific application on the Software & Applications page of the library website.
Check out a laptop (along with a mouse, power cord and Ethernet cable) at each of the three library service desks with a valid LoboID. Laptops may be checked out for 3 hours at a time and must remain in the building.
Free wireless internet service is available in library buildings through Lobo Wifi. Don't forget you can print wirelessly from your personal devices if you download the appropriate driver.
