Now Available: Updated PCs


Just in time for finals, the library second floor and IRC have several updated computer systems now available for use. We have replaced the two PCs near the elevator (no worries, Boardmaker software remains), the PC next to the rest room, and two PCs inside the IRC.  Remember, all second floor and IRC computers print to the second floor print quota printer and have access to the IRC color printer.
