Computer Availability at Boatwright Library
Students, you may use the following link (on-campus access only) to check the availability of computers in Boatwright Library: http://barley.richmond.edu:9000/LabMachineStatusServer/LabView. Links to this web page will also be available on the Libraries' web site and the Information Services web site. Once you connect to the page, just click on "image" and use the legend at the bottom of the page to see the status of each PC. You may also check on computer availability at the Main Service Desk in the library. Please note that you may not reserve any of these computers. All of them are first-come, first-serve and classes will override use in the Boatwright Computer classroom. We hope this pilot project will be helpful to you during the last few weeks of the semester.
