The law school provides access to several public-use computers, available during regular library hours. A local account on each computer has been created to allow non-SLU "public patrons" the ability to use them without having a SLUNet ID and password. This account is cleaned nightly, for security reasons. Please be sure to read the information below regarding saving data while using library computers.
Six of the Public PCs are located on the first floor of the library, at the bottom of the central staircase. One additional Public PC is located just outside faculty office #161.
These computers are equipped with the following software:
• Microsoft Office 2007
• Mozilla Firefox/Internet Explorer 8
• Adobe Reader X
• Law School "Billiken Printers"
• LexisNexis CaseMap
Important InformationQ: What happens to my files?
When you logout of any public-use computers in the Law Library, the local account and any changes you have made are deleted. Any files saved to the Desktop, "My Documents," or any other local folder, along with any bookmarks or preferences you may have created, WILL BE ERASED. If you need to save a document, please save it to a USB flash drive, or email it to yourself. (See how to do this below)
