Computer Lab 

The Law Library’s computer lab is equipped with ten computer workstations, two printers, and a scanning workstation.

  • Use of the computer workstations and printers is restricted to law students only.

  • Please report any problems with lab equipment to the staff at the Circulation Desk.

  • No food or beverages are permitted in the computer lab.

  • All General Library Policies [link] apply equally in the lab.  Failure to abide by these policies may result in lab access being withheld.

Public Computers

There are several public computers conveniently located around the library that anyone may use. Printing to an attached printer is available only on the reference desk computer and the computer just inside the library entrance.  

Loaner Laptops

The Law Library has several laptops available to lend to UNB students for use in the library. They may be borrowed at the Circulation Desk for a period of six hours upon presentation of a validated UNB student ID card. They may be renewed for an additional six hours as needed.

  • Law Library laptops are not battery operated; They must be used with the accompanying power cord.  Electrical outlets are located at all study carrels, and conveniently throughout the library.

Personally-owned Laptops and Mobile Devices

Wireless access is available in almost all areas of the Law Library, and personally-owned laptops and mobile devices can be configured to operate on UNB’s wireless network.  Instructions are available on UNB’s ITS website.

A/V Equipment

Conference Room 7 contains equipment for viewing DVDs and videotapes. Library-owned DVDs and videotapes are cataloged and shelved in the Reserve area. To use this equipment, sign out the Conference Room 7 key, the necessary remote controls, and the DVD or tape to be viewed at the Circulation Desk and return them immediately after use. Viewers are expected to have some knowledge of how to use the viewing equipment since there may be insufficient staff available at certain times to provide assistance. Regular booking policies apply to this room, except that priority will be given to those needing to use the viewing equipment in the room.

IT Support Services 

IT information sessions are held each September as part of the Orientation program for new law students.  At that time information and assistance are provided on activating UNB accounts, setting up email, and configuring personal computing equipment. 

Throughout the academic year, law students may consult the library's Computer Support Student Assistant in the IT Support Office behind the Computer Lab to get help with personal laptop / networking issues. The Computer Support Student Assistant’s schedule is posted on the office door.  Other computer support personnel are available throughout the week to respond to problems with the lab and library computer equipment.  Problems reported to the Circulation Desk will be forwarded promptly to IT support staff.
