Where can I find a computer to use?
Public Access Computers in the library are dedicated Internet terminals that allow access to the Library Catalog and other online resources. All library computers are connected to printers which allow patrons to print information from the Internet.
Although Library computers do have word processing capability, there are more appropriate resources available to current students, faculty and staff who need access to word processing and other applications:
- ACC Computer Centers-- the Computer Centers on every campus allow access to computers that have a variety of applications, including word processing and other instructional software.
- Library Use Laptops-- the libraries have a limited number of laptop computers available for checkout allowing access to a variety of applications, including word processing. Laptops may be checked out for up to 3 hours, and are for library use only.

Guidelines for Use of Computers in the Library
Library Services provides materials and resources to support the curriculum goals of the college and research, informational and lifelong learning needs of students, faculty and staff.
- Library Computer Workstations are for college-related activities or work.
- Students should take care to give students with disabilities access to computers and other machines equipped with adaptive software or other technology accommodations.
- You may be asked to give up the computer after 30 minutes. [Given the limited number of computers at all ACC libraries, we must limit computer activity to ensure equitable access for ACC students and employees.]
