Technology in the Law Library

Public Workstations

There are public workstations scattered throughout the Law Library intended primarily to access the Library online catalog (The CAT), research databases, and other short-term tasks.  These computers may be used for general computing (web browsing, checking email, etc.), but lengthy computer projects should generally be done using personally owned laptops, not the public workstations, whenever possible.

Chromebooks

The Law Library has two Chromebooks that are available at the Circulation Desk for students to check out for 4 hours.  Chromebooks may be renewed for additional time.  Included with each Chromebook is a 2-piece power cord and instructions for getting onto the Penn State wireless network.

Chromebooks automatically update when opened which helps to ensure current updates and security.  Chromebooks do not store your settings or documents locally.  In fact, it is recommended that you do not save any personal settings on the Chromebook that you borrow.  

To protect your account when using the Chromebook, follow these tips:

  • Choose "guest wireless" mode when setting up the wireless.
  • Do not save your logon credentials if you use your PSU user id and password.
  • Please deselect "save my password."

When logging out, click on your profile and select "sign out" or "exit guest."  Remember, your previous settings and applications will not remain on the Chromebook after it is returned.

Printing

Printers are located on all three floors of the Law Library.

Lexis also provides a printer on the second floor of the Law Library.  Law students can send their Lexis print jobs to this printer for free.

Copying

The Law Library has a high-quality copier on the main floor that uses LionCash+, debit or credit cards.

Scanning

The Scannx Book ScanCenter is located along the bank of computers on the main floor of the Law Library.  Users can send scanned files to their smartphone or tablet, a USB, Google Drive, or email.
