Computing Services

There are over 10 Internet connected computers and laptops in the Rowan-Virtua SOM Health Sciences Library. All computers in the library require users to log-in using their Rowan NetID. 

Programs include Microsoft Office applications.  In addition Rowan users can access programs mounted on the Rowan Virtual Desktop which includes applications such as SPSS, Adobe Acrobat, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Microsoft Visual Studio, and many other useful programs. 

It is not possible to change programs on the hard drives or load new software onto library computers.   Personal files must be saved to Rowan personal drives, flash drives, uploaded to cloud storage, or attached to emails.  Unauthorized files and documents are deleted from Library computers and laptops on a regular basis.
