Desktop Computers in the Library

Overview | Information Room  | 24/7 Computer & Study Space

The Medical Library has computer clusters in the Information Room and the 24/7 Computer and Study Space.

The  24/7 Space is on the basement level. Access is through the library's main corridor whenever the library is open. When the library is closed the 24/7 Spacecan be accessed through an outside door in the back corridor off the main Sterling Hall of Medicine stairway.  A Yale University ID card and NetID credentials are required to enter the room and go login to the computers.

All Windows computers have combo CD/DVD/DVD burner drives.  Newer models of iMacs do not come with drives but an Apple SuperDrive can be checked out from the Circulation Desk for use in Library cluster machines.   All computers and manymonitors have USB ports for personal USB portable storage devices. Each computer is configured with common browser plug-ins, such as: Adobe Acrobat Reader, Quicktime, Real Player, Shockwave, Flash and Windows Media Player. All have Symantec Antivirus software.

The Library has two scanning stations in the 24/7 space; a Windows computer and an iMac.   There is also a Windows scanning station in the Information Room.  The 24/7 space has several other computers with specialized video editing and qualitative analysis software.

The Library also has a laptop computer loaner program exclusively for use by Medical Center students. These computers may be used in the library or can be checked out for up to fivedays at a time.
