Coverage and Electrical Outlets

Access points for the University's wireless network in the Library are configured to maximize connectivity in the open seating areas. However, access is available throughout most of the Library. Wireless coverage can vary greatly within a couple of feet depending on conditions. Structural features such as columns, metal shelving units, and stairways may block or reduce signal strength in certain areas. If you are having trouble connecting, try moving.

Electrical outlets are available throughout the Library, but the number of outlets is limited. You may want to insure that your battery is fully charged before you begin your research. For safety reasons, keep power cords out of the public walkways. The following maps show locations of power outlets:
