Computer Lab & Computer Learning Centers
Student Computer Lab
The main student computer lab is located in the Williams Library on the West side of the 3rd Floor. Windows- and Mac-based computers provide access to e-mail, Microsoft Word, Lexis, Westlaw, CALI, the web, and other applications.
Black and white laser printing is available at this location using the Pharos print management system which allows students to charge printing to a university GoCard.
A scanner is available for student use, which can be used when the Information Systems Technology Help Desk is open. Student consultants are available in the Lab during posted hours. For more information or assistance, please call the Information Systems Technology Help Desk at 202-662-9284.
Computer Learning Centers
There are two computer training facilities in the Georgetown Law Library. The Williams Computer Learning Center (CLC) is located on the second floor of the Williams Library within the main Reading Room. The International Computer Learning Center (ICLC) is located on the upper level of the Wolff Library (Hotung Building, Room 4006).
These rooms are used as classrooms for hands-on teaching of a wide variety of online research systems, including Lexis, Westlaw and the web. Whenever classes are not in session, students may use these rooms for research.
Other Georgetown Law Center departments are welcome to use the rooms for training. Please follow these procedures:
- Reserve the room at least 2 days in advance. If you would like to check the availability of either room, please contact the Reference Desk in the E.B.Williams Library (202-662-9140) or the Wolff Library (202-662-4195).
Wolff Library: Mabel Shaw, ext. 9171, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Williams Library: Roger Skalbeck, ext. 9158, email@example.com.
- Both computer learning centers are equipped with a projector. The Circulation Desks at either locations have the key, cords, or remotes necessary for the projectors, and the trainer can pick them up the day of the scheduled class. If you will require access to a laptop, please contact Roger Skalbeck.
- After a class in the ICLC, the trainer should shut down the projector and return the key to the Wolff Circulation Desk. After a class in the CLC, the trainer should return the cord and remote to the Williams Circulation Desk.
- The computers available for each lab have current office productivity software including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and web access. It does not have a connection to the Law Center network. If the presenter needs to have access to files during the class, bring them on a USB flash drive. The presenter should not change any settings on equipment in either lab.
- There are 16 student computers in the CLC and 12 in the ICLC. They require the users to log in with their regular network logins. If anyone will be attending the session who does not have a GULC network login there is a training login and password available. These must be obtained in advance.
The University's computer use policy, which applies to our computers too, can be found at the Acceptable Use Policy page.
