Computers in Neilson and the branch libraries provide access to the Five College Library Catalog, electronic indexes and journals, databases and other online resources as well as Moodle and the Internet. Academic work by Smith and Five College patrons takes priority over email, personal and recreational use.

Smith Students, Faculty, and Staff: The majority of the computers in the Mair Room in Neilson Library are reserved for current Smith students, faculty, and staff, and require a current Smith Novell login.

Five College Users and SC Alumnae: There are six computers at the north end of the Mair Room in Neilson Library which are reserved for students, faculty, and staff from Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, UMass Amherst, and Smith College alumnae. Users are asked to display a current ID while using these computers.

Public Computers: There are five computers just outside the door to the Mair Room on Level 1 Core of Neilson Library which are available to the public. Microsoft Word, Excel and similar applications are not available. For more information, read our Computer Use Policy.

Printing: There is a charge of $.05 per page for printing. Smith patrons may use their Smith OneCards; outside guests may purchase a Campus Cash card in Neilson Library, level 1 Core, or in other locations. See Printers for more information.
