  • The Graham Library has four laptops for loan. They are loaded with Microsoft Office and internet access.

    Laptops may be borrowed during the hours the library is open, on a first come, first served basis. They are due at closing time (4:45, 9:45, or 11:45). There is a fee of $5.00/hour for late returns. They are available for in-library use only.

    The laptops are set up to print to the Graham Library printers.

    Laptop Rules

  • You must not leave laptops unattended in the library at any time. If the laptop is stolen while signed out to you, you will be responsible for the full replacement value.
     
  • If a staff member observes that the laptop has been left unattended while in your possession, you may no longer be eligible to borrow laptops from the Graham Library.
     
  • You may be charged up to $2000.00, if you lose or damage a laptop. The fine will be determined at the sole discretion of the Circulation Supervisor or their designate, and will not be negotiable. 
     
  • If you experience problems, bring the laptop immediately to the Circulation Desk. Do not attempt to perform any troubleshooting on it.
     
  • Upon logout, all of your files and information will be permanently deleted. To save your work, you must either: supply your own USB key, email the documents to yourself, or upload them to online storage space such as Google Drive.

The Laptop Sign-Out Waiver must be signed before a laptop computer is checked out.

Where can I scan a document?

  • The Graham Library has two scanners: a flatbed scanner attached to the south most computer on the first floor, and an overhead scanner immediately to the right of that computer.
  • A valid UTORid and password are required to acces the flatbed scanner. A USB is required to use the overhead scanner. There are instructions available online for both the flatbed and overhead scanners.
  • Scanning is free.

Where can I print?

  • From any seated computer in the library, or from your own laptop if connected wirelessly.
  • Information about printing in the library can be found in the printing instructions.

How can I connect my laptop/smartphone to the internet? 

  • The library no longer supports wired access. There are two wireless networks in the library:
    • UofT: This network is for U of T Faculty, staff, and students. Before using this network, you will need to register your UTORid by using the verify tool even if your UTORid is working for other services.
    • Eduroam: This network is for members of other Eduroam affiliated institutions who wish to connect at U of T. You will need to configure the wireless using the information provided by your home institution.
    • Unfortunately, we are not able to provide internet access for any other users.

Which network should I use?

  • If you are a U of T student, faculty, or staff member use the UofT network
  • If you are affiliated with another institution, you may be able to use the Eduroam network/ 

I’m having troubles with my UTORid. Can I still use the library computers?

  • If you just need the catalogue, you can use the terminals upstairs, or the three standing terminals across from the circulaiton desk.
  • The staff at the Circulation Desk should be able to make you a temporary login. It will allow you to sign on to the Graham Library computers for one day, but will not give you access to the wireless networks.

I’m not affiliated with U of T. Can I use the library computers/wireless?

  • If you just need the catalogue, you can use the terminals upstairs, or the three standing terminals across from the Circulation Desk.
  • If you are affiliated with another institution, you may be able to use the Eduroam network.
  • Other users can access the internet on campus using a LIRA machine at Robarts.
