Guest Wireless Access

Guests may select La Salle Guest Wireless from the list of available networks on their devices and, after a quick registration, they will be able to access the Internet.  La Salle Guest Wireless is a self-registering wireless access network similar to the ones you might find at a hotel or a coffee shop. Any visitor can log into the guest wireless network and enjoy campus wide Wi-Fi connection for as long as 24 hours stretches.

Printing

  • The Library has two black and white high volume printers networked to the computers on the first floor.  Each student should receive $30 worth of printing money at the start of every semester.  Printing costs $0.08 per page.  The computers should be set to default to two-sided printing.  This will allow you to print two pages for $0.08.  If you would like to print on just one side, you can uncheck the two-sided print option in the print dialog box when it appears.
  • If you have any problems with the printers, please ask for assistance at either the information desk or the circulation desk.
  • If you have issues with your printing account, i.e. you need more money added to your account for printing, please contact the IT Help Desk at x1860 or visit the Technology Assistance Center in Olney Hall, Room 200.
  • The Library does not have a color printer.
  • Printing services are not available to alumni.

Scanning
