Borrowing Laptops

Humanities and Arts students as well as faculty members may borrow one of our 24 available laptop computers. The laptops feature relevant programs/applications, and usage is limited to the library's premises.

Laptops may be borrowed from the circulation desk upon presentation of a valid student/staff ID card.



Internet is accessible throughout the library via two optional networks:

  • Public-TAU - The recommended network for TAU students, which allows access to Databases. 
    Login requires  a username  and password (see: accessing the network).

  • Free-TAU - This network allows all users to use the internet, but blocks access to the TAU databases.
    No username is needed –you may register by using "free-tau" as an access password.

Accessing the network

  • Choose the Public TAU (SSID) network while browsing all available networks.
  • You will be asked to key in the initial login password (WPA) publictau.
  • When uploading the browser you will be asked to login using your TAU username and password (which is your TAU E-Mail username and password).
