Support for our researchers

The Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons is a central hub of technology access on campus. We host the largest computer lab at SU, distributed across three floors of the building. We offer reservable group study rooms equipped with computers and AV equipment, loans of laptop computers, audio and video recording gear, photography equipment, technology training, and much more. We strive to meet the technology needs of on- and off-campus researchers, and to offer support online, over the phone, and in person, to ensure that you have a good experience using our resources.

 

Computers

The Library & Learning Commons has over 100 desktop computers in three labs and 20 laptop computers that can be checked out for use within the building. Computer Labs on the first and second floors are accessible 24/7 to students, faculty and staff with a valid campus ID card.

Use of these computers is restricted to academic purposes and to Seattle University students, faculty and staff (a Seattle University network ID and password is required). Computers are available on a first come, first served basis.

We also have a small, but growing, collection of Chromebook laptops that we lend for longer periods to students who need to be able to take them out of the library. Currently we are checking these out through the end of Spring Quarter, 2020.

Printers, scanners, and copiers

The printers in the Library & Learning Commons are multifunction devices, connected to Seattle University's Managed Print Services (MPS).

To print from any computer, send your print job to the default printer (SU-Print-Queue), go to the nearest MPS printer (there are six in the library), swipe your ID card or log in with your SU network ID and password, and release your print job. It costs 5.5 cents to print one black and white page, and 11.25 cents to print a page in color.

Document scanning is free, but copying is charged at the same rate as printing.

For detailed instruction on how to print, copy, or scan from a MPS device, visit the full Managed Print guide.

Audio, Video, and other Media Players

Group study rooms are equipped with SU lab computers and large displays. Some are equipped for Blu-Ray, DVD, or VHS playback as well. For more information about the group study rooms, see our guide.

One microfilm/microfiche digitizer is available for viewing and printing from micro-form media.

Ask for help with media players at the circulation desk or the iDesk.

Wireless Internet

The Library & Learning Commons is a part of the campus-wide wireless network, which gives SU students, faculty, and staff network access from all over campus. The wireless network can be accessed via a laptop with an 802.11b-compliant wireless network card.
