Computer labs are maintained by
DePaul University Information Services (IS). DePaul University Library provides multiple computer environments in the John T. Richardson Library and the Loop Library to support academic computing needs.
Several computers in Richardson Library were relocated due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They will be reinstated to their original locations during the summer 2021 quarter.
High-powered Windows (Dell Precision 7810) and Mac (6-core Mac Pros) computers are available in the CoRE. Both types include dual monitors for working with a partner.
Interactive pen displays from Cintiq can be used for digital drawing and design. Digital pens can be checked out from the Access Services desk.
Three Bloomberg terminals are available at the Loop Library for academic use by current DePaul students and faculty only. A reservation is required, and priority is given to students enrolled in relevant Finance courses. To make a reservation, stop by the Loop Library reference desk or call 312-362-8432. Remote access is not available.
Public kiosk computers are provided to guests of DePaul University and members of the public needing to access library resources, including government information, without needing to provide personal credentials. Public Kiosks are available at both the Richardson Library and the Loop Library. Please note that some of our databases are only available to members of the DePaul community and require a sign-in order to access materials. Printing is available from these machines using the IPFA Service.
The Library collaborates with DePaul University Information Services (IS) and various University departments and centers to provide a wide range of software used for teaching and learning purposes.
A list of software available on library lab and classroom computers is available from the IS Software for Lab and PC Classroom Computers page.
