Computers are available in the library on floors 1, 2, 3, 4, and the Loggia. Macs are available on the 1st floor. Visitors can access Steely's computers with a guest login. To learn more see Visitors.

NKU Virtual Desktop gives NKU students, faculty, and staff access to software (e.g., Adobe Reader DC, Microsoft Office, Minitab, etc.), on campus. To learn more about how to connect and see a list of available software, see VMWare View.  

The library offers two convenient ways to print. 

From Your Device 

NKU's Pay-for-Print option lets you print to any campus Pharos printer from your own device. For more details, see Pay-for-Print.     

From Library Computers 

Students can use their NKU username and password to print to floors 1, 3, 4, and the Loggia. When logging in, choose the "Steely Library Labs" profile to default to the nearest printer. To locate the closest printer, view maps for floor one,  floor three, and floor four. You also have the option to upload your documents to NKU's Print Center. Look for the Print Center icon located on the desktop, or link to Pay-for-Print. For more about printing see Printing for Students.    

Public Printing 

Community members can print locally from the PCs located at the 3rd floor Public Services Desk. Please visit this desk for assistance with printing. The charge per page is $ 0.10 for black & white, $ 0.75 for color prints. We accept cash, credit, or ALL CARD dollars as payment.

Scanning is also available to NKU faculty, staff, and students on two copiers on the 3rd floor. There are two scanners on the 4th floor accessible to all NKU affiliates and the community.
