Computers are all over campus, so if students arrive at Macalester without a laptop handy, they have options to choose from. Though some students don’t come with computers, having access to a computer is necessary. From getting professor and classmate emails to checking the Moodle site for a syllabus or just researching and writing a paper, computers are an essential part of Macalester life. The library also provides students with great electronic resources, including access to many online journal databases as well as the card catalog. Most students will take part in lectures at the library on how to use the technological resources offered, which seem redundant but often help when in a pinch trying to find an obscure reference article.
There are plenty of computer labs located across campus, including the basement and first floor of the library, the campus center, Carnegie, Kagin Commons, the Humanities Resource Center (HRC), and in some of the dorms. However, only dorm computer labs are open 24 hours a day. Students may also check out laptops from either the campus center or the library for a three-hour time span.
