Computer Lab at Shimberg Library

Computers are available to members of USF Health in the computer lab at Shimberg Library. Access is available by logging in using your NetID and password.

Lab Assistance

Lab assistants are trained to provide help to Lab users with basic computer problems. They are able to help start Microsoft applications, offer help with printing, and restart computers and applications that are `hung up', etc. Please call ahead to check on availability of Lab assistants, if needed. Instruction manuals for Microsoft Office software are available for reference use in the Lab.

No Food or Drink in the Lab

Food and drink items are not allowed in the Computer Lab or near the open area computers. Experience has taught us that liquids and crumbs are not compatible with computer equipment. Lab assistants have been instructed to deny Lab access to students bringing in these items.

Drink containers, whether empty or sealed, will not be allowed in the Lab. Please cooperate and place these items in a book bag or on the designated table outside the Lab.
