Computers in the Library

  • Learning Commons Computers are workstations with productivity, multimedia, statistical, assistive technology, and other software packages. They are located in all libraries and require a Network Services ID (NSID) password and login.
  • Login computers for searching and printing.  Anyone with an active NSID, including Alumni, can add money to their printing account. 
  • Public Access and Express computers do not require NSID logins.  Printing is not available from these computers.
  • Laptops for loan are available at all library locations.
  • Computers for people with disabilities are located in G19, the Assistive Technology Room on the ground floor of the Murray Library
  • Users of Learning Commons and other computers in the library are responsible for reading and understanding the regulations governing the use of these computers.


Printing is available at all library locations.  Printers are set to double-sided printing. The cost is 10 cents per side for black and white and 25 cents per side for colour.  If your print account does not have adequate funds, your job will not be printed.  Money can be added to print accounts at all library Checkout Desks.

In 2013 University of Saskatchewan students printed 1,316,117 pages of paper on Library Learning Commons printers. That's equivalent to a paper stack three times the height of the Arts Tower!
