Library Computers

There are computers throughout the library available for patron use including two labs in the lower level. Use your ONU credentials to log into any of the computers. Community members visit the lower level service desk for limited access.

Computer desktop workstations are available to students and university staff on a first-come, first-served basis in the lower level computer labs. To use these computers, you must have a valid Olivet username and password.

Computer lab holiday and break schedules may vary and are posted in the lab. See the library's calendar for more information.

Note: If there is a class scheduled in the Lower Level Instruction Lab, it will not be available for student use.

Public Research Stations

Affectionately known as the Pod Computers, the computer desktop workstations, located throughout the main floor of the library are available to students and university staff on a first-come, first-served basis. If you do not have a valid Olivet username and password check in at the lower level service desk for temporary access.
