Internet Access

We provide public Internet workstations in the reading rooms of the Information Services Section, the Government Publications Section, and the Witkin State Law Library.

Before using the Internet, users must first sign in. Internet workstation use is limited to one hour a day.

Users are encouraged to email material they want from the Internet to their personal email accounts in order to save or print on their own systems. They may also download to their own USB storage devices. There is at least one printer in each of the State Library reading rooms that is available for limited printing (up to 10 pages). Individual user email accounts are not provided.

Microsoft word processing software is available for use on all workstations in the public reading rooms.

The Braille and Talking Book Library has workstations reserved for BTBL patrons and users with physical disabilities. The workstations are equipped with special screen reading and screen enlargement software for the visually impaired and are on adjustable-height desks.
