Most of the John M. Pfau Library's computers are located on the 1st floor—in PL-111 (next to Café au Lib), PL-1003 (near the elevators), and in the Reference area. There also are a few computers near the elevators on floors 3, 4, and 5. One terminal on each of the upper floors searches only the Pfau Library Catalog. All computers are normally available whenever the library is open.

A login is required on all terminals except catalog-only terminals. CSUSB students, faculty, and staff use your MyCoyote login. All others, please see our Library Terminals Use Policy for complete details.

All of the computers print. Please see Printing and Copying for details.
