ERC computer lab

We are happy to say that the ERC library computer lab is now up and running again, as of Wednesday afternoon 1/11.  This lab is open to all current Durham Tech students (current Durham Tech ID required) doing academic work.


Technical Difficulties

We are starting off the New Year with a few technical difficulties. The most important of these is that the computers in the library computer lab have crashed, and so right now our computer lab is closed. Our upstairs public computers are available for use; you can print b/w copies for 5 cents a page or we can help you save your work to print later. Free printing (10 pages a day) for Durham Tech students is available at the Wynn Center computer lab. Our IT department is working hard to resolve this problem, and hopefully it will be fixed very soon. Meanwhile, thank you for your patience.  We will keep you updated.

Happy New Year!

We welcome all of you back to Durham Tech for our spring semester 2012. Don’t forget, you will need your Durham Tech student ID both to use reserves (these are mostly textbooks available for library use only) and to check out materials to take home. We look forward to working with you–if you have any questions, please come to the desk and ask us!
