A wireless network is available in the Library and throughout campus for users who have their own notebook computers.  In addition, twenty-four computers with internet access and Microsoft Office 2007 software accommodate users' needs for e-mail, Web access, word processing, presentation, spreadsheet and database applications.  These computers are connected to two network printers located behind the Customer Service desk.  Printouts are free for students. Community patrons are allowed to print the first ten pages for free, and charged 10 cents per additional page.

Seven additional computer terminals, located next to the reference desk, are dedicated to searching the Library's online catalog, B-VR-PAC.  One other terminal is attached to a scanner, which can be used for free to create image files and .pdf documents.  A black-and-white Xerox photocopy machine is located beyond the Customer Service; copies are 10 cents a page, and the machine provides change for bills up to $5.  The Library does not own a color printer or a fax machine.

The electronic classroom (room 9-204), with 36 networked computers, a printer, a multimedia instructor workstation, lectern and projector, is used for library instruction sessions and for placement testing. 

A microfilm/microfiche reader/printer is available at the reference area so users can consult back issues of the Beaver County Times from 1996 to the present and print articles.
