Art Library Facilities

Equipment & Computers

Computers are available for library users, with access to the Libraries' catalogs and web site as well as Internet access. Workstations are networked to a public printing station. The public computers include software such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Reader, Windows Media, QuickTime, Zotero, Mendeley and Firefox. Computer labs are located in Olin Library's Arc and through Student Computing.

A universal VHS/DVD player is available for viewing items from the Library's audiovisual collection.

Printing and copying: The Libraries provide printing and copying services to members of the Washington University community (students, faculty, and staff) using a color, multi-function printer. The system requires the use of a WUSTL KEY login. Faculty and staff require funds in their Campus Card account or a departmental account (check with your department.)

The Libraries no longer provide printing and copying services for guests and visitors who are not members of the Washington University community. In lieu of printing and copying services a number of scanner-equipped computers are provided throughout the Libraries where guests and visitors can scan documents and save them to a USB flash drive or e-mail them to an address of their choosing. In addition, documents created on Library public computers can also be saved to a USB flash drive or e-mailed to an address of the user's choosing.

More information about Print and Copy Services can be found here.

Scanning Stations: Four self-service scanners are provided for the scanning of library materials. One scanner is next to the VHS/DVD player, one scanner is in the stacks by the bound periodicals and two scanners are in the copy room. Scans may be saved to a USB storage device or saved and emailed. Storage media is not provided by the Library but may be purchased at the campus bookstore. Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro is available on the computers attached to the scanners in the copy room. Image editing must be done on computers outside the library; Photoshop is not available on any art library computers.

Study & Meeting Rooms

Rome Seminar Room: Library users may reserve the Rome Seminar Room at the service desk or by contacting the library. Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis, and may be scheduled up to three hours at a time. The seminar room cannot be reserved for a regularly scheduled class. Arriving more than 15 minutes late forfeits the reservation. Scheduling priority is given to library instruction sessions.

Graduate Study Room: The Graduate Study Room is available on a request basis to graduate students in the Department of Art History and the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts. Students in the Department of Art History are eligible for locker and shelf space in the room.
