Cornell Law School Computer Lab
The Computer Lab is located on the 3rd floor of the Library just off from the Gould Reading Room. The lab is open 24/7 with card id access on the main door after 5pm. The Law School computer lab consists of 45 computers. The computers have Windows XP installed on them. Software applications installed on each computer: Microsoft Office suite, Word Perfect, Macromedia 8, NVU, Bear Access, FireFox, IE, Quick Time, Java, Flash Player, Symantec Anti Virus, Media Player 10, and Lexis Nexis and Westlaw Citation tools.
In the lab, there is a scanner station, a resume station and a computer configured to support assisted technologies. The lab is divided into 3 different rooms, a teaching room which has a projector and screen, a main room and a smaller room.
The lab has 4 black and white printers, 1 color printer and a desktop printer used for resumes. Westlaw and Lexis Nexis have their own printers located in the lab as well. The printers are connected to the Cornell University's net-print system. Each Law School student is credited 500 free black and white pages to start each semester. Students who print over the 500 pages are charged at 9 cents per page. Note: Color pages are charged at 30 cents per page or count as three black and white pages.
Gail Howser, Computer Lab Manager, is available M-F from 8:30-4:00. Also, throughout the semester there are student workers who man the lab on off hours, usually 5-10pm M-F and weekends if you should have any questions. The door to the computer lab is accessed by using your Cornell Student ID card on nights and weekends.
During the school year consultants are on duty to maintain and support the lab.
The hours that consultants work are as follows:
The consultant's job is to help the students with any questions about the lab computers and software.
The lab goes into maintenance mode on Sundays from 1am-6am. At this time, the computers shut down and all data will be lost unless backed up by floppy drive, flash drive or saved to the “student drive” on the network.
In the summer of 2009 we will be upgrading the computer lab with new Dell computers and Windows Vista.
