Library Services (Instructor)

Open Computer Area

The PNW Library has open areas with computers and printers for students, faculty, and staff to use.

Log into workstations using your Purdue Career Account. A custom profile is built for each user when logging into a Windows-based computer in a campus lab or classroom.

Our computers are primarily a Windows environment but Apple computers are available in select locations on both campuses.

Hammond Open area is located in the middle of the library and has 2 All-in-one (printer/scanner/copier)

Westville Open area is in the back south corner and has 1 All-in-one (printer/scanner/copier)

All-in-one Printer; Scanner; Copy Machine

The library has printers in the open computer areas of the library. 

With this machine, you can print black and white or color from computers and laptops through Papercut.

When you log into the machine you can scan the material and send it to your email or you can make a photocopy of the material that will print out.

Computer Labs (Electronic Classroom)

When not being used for Library instruction we have electronic classrooms with computers. Instructors can book a day or a couple of days for their class.
