45 PC stations in the reference area and 17 in the instruction lab (schedule permitting). Software includes Internet browsers, Windows, MS Office and various applications for specific programs of study.
12 laptop computers and 25 iPads are available for in-library checkout by current Seattle Central students, faculty, and staff (with wireless access to the Internet). Please note that no other software is loaded on these computers.
The cost is $0.05 for single sided black/white and $0.10 for double sided black/white. Color pages cost $0.50. When possible please save paper and the environment by selecting the Print on Both Sides option.
Each student receives an initial allocation of $0.50 their first quarter. When that runs out, it’s time to add money at a PCounter station in the Library or the Computer Lab. Machines take coins as well as bills, and are set to use “exact change.” The amount you put in stays in. There are no refunds, so it’s best not to put in excessive amounts of money.
