TVCC Libraries: Computers, Printers, & Technology

Does The Library Have Computers For Student Use?

The Athens Library has 37 computers available for student and faculty use.

Do I Need A Student ID To Use A Library Computer?

Students wishing to utilize the computers in the computer or study room must have a current TVCC ID.  Student's that did not bring their ID or are wanting "quick access" to a machine can use one of the computers on the main library floor.

Can I Save My Work On The Library's Computers?

We ask that all students save their work on a USB drive.  Student's saving their work on the computers risk both losing their work or having other students view their personal information.  

Can My Friends And I Work Together On A Computer?

Yes, there are areas in the library that allow for users to work together.  The Athens library has a new, state of the art collaboration room that allows up to 4 group members to plug their laptops in and have their work displayed on a large screen TV.  Unfortunately, group work is not allowed in the library's main computer room due to testing.  Study rooms and exterior computers are also available for completing group assignments.

How Much Does It Cost To Print?
