Software locations

We do not allow software to be installed on our public computers because they are not meant to be a replacement for the Webster computer labs in other buildings. Our computers are primarily meant for research and general computer use. CD-ROM'S and other software may only be READ from the drive if no file installation is necessary to read them.

Patrons can request, at either the 2nd floor Reference Desk or the 1st floor Service Desk, that additional plug-ins be loaded on library PCs. The decision to load a plug-in is based on the PC's configuration, potenial use and known security issues. Software cannot be loaded at the time of the request but must be put in the Library Systems work queue for review and evaluation.
