Network connections and wireless access points for laptops are available in the Medical Library. Wireless access is also available in most locations through the Medical Center campus and on Yale's central campus. All wired computers network adapters must be registered with ITS (Yale Information Technology Services) before they will work on the university network. Some WiFi options require registration while others do not.
Wired Ethernet jacks are available in several locations within the Medical Library. Two carrels in the Morse Reading Room and three locations in the Information Room have live ethernet connections. They are easily identified by the Ethernet cables in these locations. Wired connections provide faster connectivity than wireless and users who want to transfer large amounts of data may notice better speed and performance on a wired connection.
Medical School students needing assistance should go to the our ITS partners Computer Service Center. The CSC is located on the lower level of the Medical Library.
Yale School of Nursing Students should contact the ITS Help Desk at 785-3200 or staff located in the School of Nursing: Neal Greene in the YSN AV office (email@example.com, (203) 785-2392).
All areas of the Medical Library have excellent wireless coverage. The preferred network is YaleSecure. It provides an encrypted, secure connection. YaleSecure requires an Yale NetID for access. If you have trouble configuring your WiFi to use YaleSecure, ITS has an online configuration tool which you may find easier.
YaleGuest Network - The Yale University Guest Wireless Network provides a limited wireless data network for guests of the university. It allows access to a segregated portion of the unversity's wireless network and does not provide access to Yale University licensed content. YaleGuest is an insecure network (open and unencrypted) and should not be used by members of the University community.

The Library is transitioning from one print system (CCP copy card) to Yale UniPrint between August and October 2012. Information on configuring your Mac, Windows or Linux computer for the UniPrint system is on the YPPS site: ypps.yale.edu/uniprint
Coming Soon: iPad printing! Stay tuned for details.
Mobile Devices with WiFi capability may be used on the Yale wireless network. As with laptop computers, the easiest and best way to connect is to use the YaleSecure network. More details about using a handheld mobile device on the network are available on the Medical Library's Web-based Resources on your Mobile Device page.
