Suggestion: please put signs by the computers on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors that they are intended for catalog use, not for reading articles, doing email, etc.
Answer: actually, we do not restrict any computers in the library in this way. The public computers on the upper floors of the library are available for anything that’s not illegal or restricted by the SMU computer use policy. We do realize that it’s aggravating when you can’t locate a computer on an upper floor to do a quick catalog lookup, so we are constantly evaluating the numbers and locations of computers available. If you have a smartphone, you might want to try the mobile version of our library catalog.
