Client Computing Lab

The Client Computing general-purpose computer lab located in Owens Library provides services to faculty, staff, and students with assistance from the Technology Support Assistants (TSA).

The Client Computing computer lab is equipped with PCs, Internet docking stations for notebook computers, color scanners, CD recorders, USB ports and printing facilities.

The Client Computing general-purpose computer lab PCs are Hewlett Packards with DVD recorders.

The Client Computing general-purpose computer lab PCs have Windows 7 operating system and Microsoft Office 2010 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher, Visio, Outlook). The PCs also have Microsoft Forefront Client Security, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.

CD burning (recording) by Client Computing staff is available if you would like files burned to a CD, but do not possess the media. A nominal fee is charged for this service (covers cost of Client Computing provided CD). The TSAs will entirely oversee the burning process in this instance.

Printing facilities include black-and-white and color laser printers, as well as, a Fuji Pictography 4500 for professional-quality photo printing.

*Special paper, such as resume paper, card stock, labels, etc., are not provided by Client Computing.

Personally provided transparencies are not allowed in the laser printers, unless the transparencies are in a sealed box that is clearly labeled for use with laser printers. Inkjet transparencies and transparency for copy machines are not allowed in the laser printers and will, in fact, damage the laser printers. All special paper must be compatible with laser printing. Providing your own laser paper for printing does not change the cost of printing.

Printers are located in the Owens Library Computer Lab on first floor. A computer and printer for special printing is located at the TSA desk at the front of the computer lab on the first floor.

Printing charges to the networked, black-and-white and color laser printers are automatically billed to one's personal student, faculty or staff account via an electronic billing system. If you do not have a university username and password, you will not be able to print to a university networked printer. Billing for printing is done by Northwest's Bursar's Office and nonpayment of charges will result in services being discontinued.

The Client Computing general-purpose labs are managed by the User Consultants, who are the supervisors of the TSAs in the lab.
