POPULAR Q&As: HOW DO I …

Log into the computers in the library’s computer lab or study rooms?
When you log-into a computer in the Library’s computer lab or study rooms, use your 14-digit Evergreen Indiana (E.I.) Library Card number, which appears on the BACK of your E.I. library card. Type-in the number without any spaces, e.g., 27323001234567.
Print from a computer in the computer lab or study rooms?
Print your document(s) from whichever computer station you’re using. There should be a label or sign on the computer monitor indicating the station number. In most software, printing is usually done by clicking a printer icon (in the software’s tool bar) or by clicking FILE, then PRINT, in the software’s menu bar. Sometimes, you may also right-click the mouse and choose PRINT. VERY IMPORTANT: If you want to print in color, change the setting at the top of the pop-up window (default setting is black-and-white). To print, click the OK button in the pop-up window; then click the PRINT button in the second pop-up window. This sends your print job to the printer/photocopier.
Once you’ve sent your print job(s) to the printer/photocopier (across from the computer lab), you will need to print the document(s) at the printer/photocopier. Click here (or click the icon below) for step-by-step printing instructions.
