The Marvin K. Peterson Library has seventy-nine (79) Dell desktop computers and eight (8) iMacs for our students, faculty and staff. You will need to log onto the computer with your UNH e-mail account user-name and password. All other users will need to speak with a Librarian at the Information Desk. Each of these computers has the Microsoft Office Suite and Internet connectivity.
The Library also has forty-five (45) Dell laptop computers and six (6) iPads available for use by currently enrolled UNH students, faculty and staff. Laptops can only be used in-house for a 3 hour time period. Laptops have the Microsoft Office Suite and SPSS. Laptops automatically connect to the UNH campus network when booted up. To find out more about the policies and procedures regarding these laptops go to the "Library Laptop In-House Loan Policy and Procedures" page.
All patrons using a library computer or library laptop are expected to be familiar with and adhere to the Library's Electronic Services Access Policy.
For the time being, printing is free of charge to currently enrolled students, faculty and staff of the University of New Haven. You will need to swipe your UNH ID card to release printouts at the computer dedicated to the print management system. All others can print for 10 cents per page.
The entire library is a UNH wireless zone. In addition, there are 130 network connection boxes on the walls and columns near individual carrels and desks that allow you to plug your laptops directly into the UNH campus network. These are located on all three floors. All you need is an Ethernet card and network cable to connect to the campus network.
