Computers, Printing, Scanning, & Photocopying

Computers

The BU Common @ Mugar is the University’s primary PC lab and includes nearly 200 “thin client” PCs scattered throughout the first three floors of Mugar Library. Thin client machines are also available within the branch libraries. These computers are all managed centrally by Information Services & Technology (IS&T) and help to significantly reduce energy consumption. The machines offer a variety of applications.

Assistance for library or personal computers is available at the IT Help Desk located on the first floor of Mugar Library. Additionally, help can be obtained via the IS&T website.
