Harvard Divinity School provides on-campus computers, printers, and scanners for student use. Many of them are located in the Harvard Divinity School Library and are available during regular library hours.
Equipment in the Harvard Divinity School Library
On the library's first floor, two scanners are located across from the circulation desk, and a color printer can be found in room 139. In addition, there are seven public computers with Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and other Office 365 software installed, as well as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Adobe Acrobat.
On the second floor, all public computers have Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and other Office 365 software installed, as well as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Adobe Acrobat. In addition, five computers have Accordance Bible software, one has Adobe Creative Cloud, and two have Thesaurus Linguae Graecae. Computers with special software are clearly labeled.
For students who prefer to use their own laptops, two 24” monitors, keyboards, and mice have been added to the standing desk areas behind the computers on the second floor. Students are encouraged to bring their own cables to connect to the monitors, which have DVI, HDMI, and VGA ports. Or, students can check out a cable at the circulation desk on the first floor.
Room 235 on the second floor has a color printer and a scanner. Please see Wireless Networking and Printing for printing instructions.
Using Student Computing Resources
Do not store files on the hard drives of these computers; all data is erased every time the computer is rebooted. Please email your work to yourself, or copy it to external media, before you leave.
Installing or modifying software on HDS computers is not permitted.
Please use headphones for any program playing sounds and/or music. Headphones are not provided; please bring your own.
Please follow Harvard Divinity School Library policies regarding food and drink.
As in any public place, do not leave your belongings unattended.
Academic Technology Consultants from the HDS Office of IT and Media Services are available for consultations by appointment year-round. Email the HDS academic technology team at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
During the academic year, Academic Technology Consultants are often available on the second floor of the library; look for them at the computers in the center of the room.
If no consultant is on duty, please call the Harvard University IT Service Desk at 617.495.7777 or email email@example.com. If your problem occurs outside of regular business hours and cannot be resolved over the phone, your call will be logged and a technician will get back to you on the next business day.
