Who can use the Learning Commons?
Current Emory University Students, Faculty, and Staff
The Learning Commons computer workstations are open to everyone currently enrolled in or employed by Emory University. An Emory NetID and password are required for logging in.
Other Emory Affiliated Users & Alumni
The Learning Commons aims to serve the entire Emory community. Those users who are affiliated with Emory University but do not have an Emory NetID can obtain a login and a password at one of the Learning Commons help desks. Emory alumni are included in this category.
There are two Express Service computer workstations on Level 2 opposite the Library Service Desk that do not require a password and, therefore, can be used, subject to availability, by visitors. There is a 30-minute time limit at these workstations. Priority is given to visiting researchers/scholars. These iMac workstations:
- Provide access to our library catalog and the Internet (Internet Explorer and Firefox browswers are installed)
- Feature Microsoft Office, including Microsoft Word, Power Point and Excel applications
- Offer Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing PDF documents
- Have multimedia players for accessing online audiovisual material
We do not offer PC workstations for visitors.
There are also several online catalog computer stations located throughout the library that visitors can use to search Emory's library collections.
