Frequently Asked Questions
In order to use LabNet computers, you can type in your MUN Login credentials and your account should be generated automatically. You can also have your account set up at the Computing Support Desk in The Commons, or in most other LabNet computer labs on campus. To have your account created, you must be a student, faculty, or staff member at Memorial University of Newfoundland with an active my.mun.ca account. Guest accounts are available for those members of the community who have official business with the university.
To print in The Commons, you must have money on your MUN account. There are two was to add money:
- Use one of the two black OneCard machines next to the photocopiers/washrooms on the main floor of the QEII Library (minimum $1)
- Click on the Add Money to My Print Account button on The Commons homepage
Once you have added money to your account, log into a LabNet computer, open the file, and click Print.
We have increased the number of wireless access points on all floors of the Library, focusing mainly on the group study hallways, the study areas along the front, and The Commons area. It is our hope that these additions will make the use of wireless in the Library a much more enjoyable experience for everyone.
Yes! The Digital Media Centre offers scanning, free of charge. We can accommodate documents/photos up to tabloid size, as well as projector slides.
The Commons computers are divided into two different sections, the Webcat computers and the LabNet computers.
LabNet computers provide students, faculty, and staff with access to basic software (Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel), some specialized software (such as SPSS and Minitab), and full internet access. You can also save files to your personal H drive, which can be accessed from any LabNet machine or from home via WinSCP/Cyberduck.
Webcat computers are available to all library patrons, including the general public. In order to get a Webcat account, patrons will need to present a valid photo ID to the Computing Support Desk staff. The main purpose of these computers is to access the library catalogue, but they can be used for other purposes (although users may experience limited functionality).
If you’re not sure which computer to use, speak to Computing Support Desk staff.
The primary function of the Commons Classroom is to be a teaching space for library research instruction. When the room is not in use for a class or special function, it is available for general use. Please note that this is a designated Silent Area.
No! According to Memorial’s Copyright guidelines, only 10% of any copyrighted material may be copied. In addition, DMC clients may not scan doctors’ notes, money, or fiscal statements (i.e. credit card bills).
If you are a student with a visual impairment or learning disability and require the use of an electronic format text, please contact the Glenn Roy Blundon Centre about your scanning options. You can also request alternate text formats through the library.
