A laptop with modern wireless capability will see a signal to the UVM network. Upon clicking on this network, a UVM NetID and password is required.

If a patron wishes to use the network with the use of an Ethernet cable, there are jacks available along the outside wall of the Cyber Café. Ethernet cables can also be checked out from the Circulation Desk.

  • Find your Subject Librarian by department. Select the librarian’s name to find a “Schedule an Appointment” link or contact information.  
  • Librarians are also available at the Reference Desk. Consult Hours and Directions for more information about Reference Desk hours.

To print from your laptop, you first need to download a software package.

When installation is complete, follow directions as from library computers. The job will be listed as the name of your computer (e.g. John’s computer).

On the Library home page, select “Connect Off Campus” and log in with your NetID and password.

If you continue to have problems accessing a database after logging in, please submit an eResource Problem Report.

NOTE: If you do not have a NetID and password, you will need to access the databases from the public computers in Bailey/Howe Library.

 

The Bailey/Howe Library provides ten group study rooms to currently enrolled UVM students, faculty, and staff.

The group study rooms are designed to serve as a place for users to engage in collaborative work in small groups, watch videos, and hold meetings.

Group study rooms are equipped with large monitors, whiteboards, and computers. Most have additional data and power jacks for up to six laptops.

You can book a group study room, as well as review further details about the policies governing the use of these rooms by visiting the following link: http://library.uvm.edu/about/policies/group_study.php

Our Finding a Book in the Library tutorial offers some good tips on finding books with CATQuest and locating books in the library's main collection.

 

All print jobs need to be retrieved through a card swipe system. 

  • Non-UVM affiliates can purchase and deposit money onto the required card at the CATcard machine at the front (Circulation) desk. 
  • UVM affiliates can use this machine to deposit more money onto their UVM ID card, if necessary.
  • Using the card swipe located near the printer, swipe your card to view jobs in the queue. 

Jobs sent from UVM Affiliate machines can be found listed under your NetID. Jobs sent from public computers can be found listed under the name of the computer from which you sent the job (e.g. user110).

The library computers will send your print job to whichever printer option is chosen. Unless you choose a different printer, before or during printing, the default printer is where you will go to retrieve your print job.

  • For UVM affiliate computers, everywhere but inside the Cyber Café has a default printer as the Reference Department printer.
  • Cyber Café Computers will, by default, print to the black and white printer inside the glass doors to the café.
  • The Public Access computers' default print station is the printer just outside the Cyber Café.
