Public computers in the lobby, Reference Room, Children’s Room and Teen Zone provide access to the Internet. Check your e-mail account or search our subscription reference databases. You may search them in the library as well as all the other databases that are available from home.
Wireless Internet Access
The library has a wireless network with three access points. You may use your laptop computer with a wireless network interface card that supports the Wi-Fi standard known as IEEE 802.11b or g. Ask for detailed instruction sheets at the Information Desk if you have any difficulty connecting to the network. You may use library printers if you save information to a disk.
Business Software & Scanner
Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are available on two computers in the lobby. A scanner may be used to add an image to your document or to print a color picture.
Several computers in the Children’s Room have educational CD-ROM games suitable for different age levels.
One copy machine is provided in the Reference Room. Black and white copies cost ten cents per page and color copies are thirty-five cents per page. You may also use this machine to reduce and enlarge documents.
Two types of projectors may be borrowed by Randolph cardholders. The carousel slide projector will show your family, travel, or nature slides, and the opaque projector will enlarge and project a photo, drawing, or printed sheet of paper.
