Computing & Technology

Computers in the Libraries

Computers in the Libraries are available for academic work by Smith and Five College students, faculty, and staff and alumnae and visiting researchers as detailed in the Smith College Acceptable Use of Computer and Electronic Resources Policy.

Mac and Windows workstations are available in Young Library (first floor), Hillyer Art Library (all floors), and Josten Library (first floor). Mac and Windows laptops are available for loan by Smith, Five College, and alumnae patrons in Young Library.

Library computers provide access to online content including journals and databases licensed by Smith and an extensive suite of campus software and tools. 

Computer Access

Computers designated for Smith College users require a current Smith network login. Five College students who are registered for Smith classes should contact Smith College ITS to set up a temporary Smith network login which will allow them access to Smith-only computers.

Five College users (Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and UMass Amherst), Smith College alumnae, and unaffiliated researchers may use workstations designated for visitors. Library Service desk staff will log them into the Smith network.
