Douglass Library Computer Lab

Douglass Library Computer Lab

The Mabel Smith Douglass Library houses a computer lab on the ground floor. To the right of the main desk, you’ll find many computers at round tables, with each computer station nicely divided by partitions for both quiet and privacy. This site also has access to the Rutgers Library Copy Card system, an alternative to the $30 printing balance students receive each semester. This site is staffed during peak hours to help patrons with any questions or problems that they might encounter.
