Computers, Printing, Photocopying
- UT EID Workstations
- These computers are restricted to current students, faculty and staff with valid UT EIDs. Courtesy Borrowers and authorized guests may also use their EIDs to log on to these stations within established limits.
Except for MatLab, scientific software (such as drawing programs) is not available on library machines. Computer labs in the Chemistry Dept. provide this kind of software for students. Specific questions can be directed to the Information Technology staff.
- Library Catalog Station
- One computer provides walk-up access only to search the library's online catalog. No EID is required.
- Wireless access
- The encrypted UTNet campus network (restricted.utexas.edu) is available throughout Welch Hall. You must have a valid UT EID to log on. For more information see the ITS Public Network page.
- Access is on a first-come basis. Time limits may be enforced when others are waiting.
- Academics First: Priority goes to those doing academic work and using library resources. You may be asked to yield the machine when others are waiting.
- Unaffiliated guests must have or claim a UT EID and request temporary workstation authorization from library staff before being permitted to log on to a workstation.
- Persons needing to use the scanners have priority on those workstations.
The Chemistry Library has a print station that receives print jobs from any of the library's workstations. To print, you must have a UT Libraries copy card (see below).
- Execute a PRINT command in the software you are currently using. You will be asked to name your job. Select the "non-PCL" printer if asked. The job will then go to the Print Station, located in the first copier alcove.
- Insert your copy card into the reader attached to the Print Station.
- Select your job from the print queue. The station will check your card to make sure you have enough money to print the pages. Cost is $0.10 per page.
- Unprinted jobs will remain on the server for two hours before being deleted.
- Library workstations are not connected to Chemistry Department printing services. You can't send print jobs to non-library printers from our workstations.
- Color printing is available (at higher charge) in the Architecture and Fine Arts libraries as well as PCL.
Printing from Laptops
If you want to send a print job from your own laptop to a library pay-printer, first download a print client from the Libraries' Computing page. Then your job will be sent to all pay printers in the Libraries, where it will remain for two hours or until you print it.
Photocopying and Scanning
A Public photocopier is located in the alcove along the north wall.
- Copies cost is $0.13 per page. This machine accepts only UT Libraries copy cards, and do not accept bills, coins, or Bevo Bucks.
Library copy cards can be purchased or revalued in most library units, including Chemistry, from self-service vending machines in the copier areas. The machine accepts bills and credit cards, but not coins or Bevo Bucks. A new card with zero value costs $1. Read the instructions carefully before paying.
THE CHEMISTRY LIBRARY CANNOT PROVIDE CHANGE OR REFUNDS.
If you lose money due to a card or copier malfunction, report it to the Copy Center in the Perry-Castañeda Library (First Floor). You can use the ring-down phone next to the vending machine. The Libraries are not responsible for lost or stolen copy cards.
- Two flatbed scanners are available in the library's workstation area. You can scan a document and save it to a file on a USB device or send it to the pay printer. There is no charge for scanning.
- The Chemistry Library has only readers for microfilm and microfiche. You can print or scan microforms at the Engineering Library, Life Science Library, and PCL. Check out the envelope or reel for two hours at the circulation desk.
- Questions about Copyright?
- Faculty and staff should refer to the UT System Intellectual Property Policy for information on fair use, educational use, permissions, and a "crash course" on these issues. See also links on Protecting Intellectual Property.
